A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy food and build a chicken house for her chickens.


Chhaem's Group's story

This village loan group consists of ten members. They live in Vihear village in Kandal province. Mrs. Chhaem N. is a 44-year-old married woman, selected as the village bank president by the members of this village. They will each use their portion of the loan to support his or her different purpose.

Mrs. Chhaem N. raises chickens to earn a little income to support her family. However, she lacks enough money to maintain this business. So she decided to ask for a loan to buy food and to build a chicken house for her chickens. Her husband, Mr. Bith Vann, 48, works as a laborer and also helps in his wife's current business.

This couple has seven children: three are seamstresses, three are attending the local school and the last one is four years old.

On debursement day, Mrs. Chhaem N. did not come to take the loan but her husband did. Thus, Mr. Bith Vann is present in the picture instead of his wife.

In this group: Chhaem, On, Kruy, Meourn, Muon, Mean, Lay, Sot, Chea, An
