Mrs. Nou Samai Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan is made up of 16 people located in Khnar Rung village, Takeo province. The group has selected Mrs. Nou S. as village bank president. The group members will use their portions of the loan for different purposes in order to improve their family's standard of living.
Mrs. Nou S. is a mother of two children who both attend public school. She and her husband, Mr. Ra Ben, are farmers who own a half-hectare plot of land to grow rice, watermelon and cucumber to sell to support their family. Nou S. also breeds chickens. Now it is time to grow crops, but her income is small as her business has recently suffered due to insufficient capital. To improve production, Mrs. Nou S. is asking for a loan to buy watermelon seed, cucumber seed and rice. With the rest of the loan she is going to buy more chicken and chicken food.
