Mrs. Lay Kunthea Village Bank Group's story

The Village Bank which is located in Ta Reab Doun Sar Village in the Kandal Province consists of fifteen members. Mrs. Lay K., 30, is the village bank president who has been selected by the members in the village bank. She sells different kinds of vegetable in the local market. Her husband, Mr. Hem V., is a farmer who cultivates rice and vegetable. Aside from this business, he is soldier who has been retired and he can get a small salary to support his family. The couple has four children, three of whom are attending school while the youngest one is too young to work or study.

Since her business is going well, Mrs. Lay K. wants to expand and is requesting a loan to purchase more vegetables for resale. (Mrs.Tat S. is not shown in the picture but her husband is because he came to take a loan instead of her while Mrs.Tat S. is very busy with her work.)
