A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy more groceries.


Mrs. Hean Soknoeun Village Bank Group's story

Twelve people who make up a village bank loan live in Veay Chhneah village, Takeo province. They will use their portions of the loan in varied ways to support their families. Mrs. Hean S. is the village bank president who has been selected by the other members. She owns a general shore in the local village where she sells groceries to get some profit to support her family. She also is a pig breeder. Her husband, Mr. Sroun Kong, is a motorbike taxi driver in Phnom Penh city. Through this activity, they support two children, one of whom is a student. The younger one is 2 years old. Since her businesses are getting on well, Mrs. Hean S. wants to expand, so she is asking for a loan to buy more groceries and the rest of the loan she is going use to buy more pig food.
