Sam's Group's story

This village bank loan consists of eighteen members. Mr. Sam, who was born in 1952, is the village bank president. He was selected to be the group leader by the other members. He and his wife are farmers who own a plot of land which they use to grow rice for supporting their family living.

With this farm, they do not have enough money to grow rice on it. Thus, Mr. Sam would like to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers, pesticides, and to pay laborers to grow rice. Aside from farming, he is also a commune clerk who is able to earn a small income to help support his family. This couple has two children: one is a farmer and one is a seamstress in a garment factory.

In this group: Sam, Ing, Puk, Sreng, Hak, Yeom, Saret, Heng, Yeom, Yeom, Hy, Chhon, Hak, Kea, Koy, Yon, Mach, Kheng
