Mrs. Him Em Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has ten people who live in the Ta Sou village in the Takeo province. Mrs. Him E., 35, has been selected by the other members to be the village bank president. Each member will use their portion of the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Him E. is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to grow rice to sell to support her family. She is also a recycled goods seller who is able to earn some income to support her family. Though she tries to work hard, she earns a little money. So to improve her family's lives, Mrs. Him E. is seeking a loan to add more money to buy a cow for breeding to start a new business. She is a widow with four children, three of whom are enrolled in local school while the youngest one is four years old.
