Soeun's Group's story

In Tep Archun village in Kandal province, there are 11 people making up a village bank loan. Mrs. Soeun C., born in 1965, is the village bank president and was selected to this position by the other members.

She and her husband, Mr. Chheoun Sovann, are farmers who own a plot of land where they grow corn, rice, and various vegetables. They grow and sell these crops to support their family. At present, they do not have sufficient funds to prepare the farm to grow their crops. This is why Mrs. Soeun C. is requesting a loan. With the loan, she will buy corn seeds and fertilizers and will be able to pay for hired laborers to plow her farm in preparation for growing rice.

This couple has five children, four of whom are students who also help support their parents' farming business. The youngest is five years old and not yet in school.
