A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide.

Mrs. Rem Village Bank Group's story

Fourteen people who make up a village bank loan will each use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve each family's standard of living. The borrowers have selected Mrs. Rem to be a village bank president.

Mrs. Rem is a congee seller who earns some profit to support her family while her husband, Mr. Bet, is a farmer who owns a 1-hectare plot of land where he grows rice. He sells part of the yield, and uses the rest of the rice to support his family. In the rice field, Mrs. Rem faces obstacles because her field is infertile soil and it has a lot of insects. To improve rice production, Mrs. Rem is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide. She is a mother of three children. One is a singer, while the others attend local public school.

In this group: Rem, Tham, Aun, Kim Soeurn, Savoeun, Mon, Pao, Min, Pheang, Ngan, Yen, Chantrea, Sophy, Sreysros
