Mr. Pen Bros Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan consists of thirteen people in Thnoas village in Takeo province. They will use their portion of the loan for different purposes in order to improve their families' living.
Mr. Pen B. is a village bank president who has been selected by the other members. He was born in 1972. He is a widower with four children, three of whom are studying in local public school, but the other one is too small to work or study. He is a farmer who owns a half-hectare plot of land where he grows rice to sell in order to support his family. Besides farming, he is a laborer and rock breaker, too. He does very hard work, and yet he can earn only a little income. So Mr. Pen B. is applying for a loan to buy two piglets for breeding as well as pig food, to start a new business. With the rest of the loan, he is going to pay his children’s school fees.
