A loan of $3,350 helped a member to cultivate vegetables.


Soam's Group's story

Eighteen members form this village bank loan group. Mrs. Soam is a village bank president. She was selected as the village bank president by the other members. Each member of this group will use their money to support their different purposes. Mrs. Soam and her husband Mr. Roth are farmers who own a plot of land. They use the land to grow different vegetables for their family living. They do not have enough money to grow this farming business. Thus, Mrs. Soam would like to ask for a loan to use for cultivating vegetables. Aside from farming, Mrs. Soam's husband also earns a living by fishing in the local village. The couple has four children: two are seamstresses in garment factories, one is an iron welder, and the last one is attending a local school.

In this group: Soam, Seth, Ul, Korng, Ol, Phan, Men, Long, Pan, Dim, Naov, Nhok, Yem, Krouch, Nov, Nut, Loem, Long
