Meng's Group's story

In Kampong Svay village, in the province of Kandal, there are seventeen members making a village bank loan. Mr. Meng S. is 45 years old, and he is the village bank president selected by its members. Each of them will use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve their family's living standards.

Mr. Meng S. and his wife, Mrs. Chheng Siebly, are farmers who own a plot of land which they use to cultivate rice for a living. For their farm, Mr. Meng S. would like to ask for a loan to buy farming supplies for cultivating rice. He wants to use the rest of the loan to support his fishing. Aside from farming, they also earn their living through fishing.
