Tort's Group's story

Ten people make up this village bank loA.. They are located in Khmut village in Kandal province. This village bank group selected Mrs. Tort S. A., 52 years old, as the village bank president. Mrs. Tort S. A. and her husband, Mr. Um Vy, are farmers who own a 2-hectare plot of land that they use to cultivate rice to earn a living. They do not have enough money to grow crops on their farm. So Mrs. Tort S. A. decided to ask for a loA. to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and to pay to hire laborers to plow her farm to cultivate rice. They are farmers who have worked very hard to raise their six children: three are seamstresses in a garment factory while and two are students in the local school, while another stays at home and helps the parents with their farming.

In this group: Tort, Men, Man, Chum, Hoeurn, Oeurng, Loem, Lou, Long, Long
