Mrs. Sophat Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan is made up of 11 members. Mrs. Sophat is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. Each member will use their portion of the loan for different purposes in order to improve their family's standard of living.

Mrs. Sophat is a mother of three children, one of whom is a laborer while the others study at the local public school. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where she grows rice for her own family and to sell. Her husband, Mr. Norb, owns some cinema equipment that he rents out to earn some money to support his family. Since her husband’s business is getting on well, Mrs. Sophat wants to expand it. Therefore, she is applying for a loan to buy more cinema equipment.
