A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy pig food to feed her pigs.


Mrs. Ban Sok's Village Bank Group's story

Fourteen people in Chrolong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province form a village bank [solidarity group]. The group members will use the loan in different ways. Mrs. Ban S. is the village bank president, and she raises three pigs and four cows. Because her animals are growing very fast now and she does not have enough money to purchase more food to feed them, Mrs. Ban S. decided to ask for a loan. Her husband, Mr. Kong Teng, helps his wife with the business. Mrs. Ban S. is a 34-year-old woman without any children.

Mrs. Yin G. L. did not come to receive her loan. Her husband came for her instead, so he is presented in the picture.

This is a village bank loan consisting of mainly end-of-term loans. Ten members have end-of-term loans, and the rest have monthly payment loans. These members are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. End-of-term (EoT) loans are AMK's main product because they are the most beneficial to Cambodia's poor. The product allows them to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able to do so. Most clients start to make payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK's clients make their payments on time. AMK [Kiva’s Field Partner] has a delinquency rate of only 0.09% and AMK has a default rate of 0% on Kiva.

In this group: Ban, Sum, Yin, Yeang, Prum, Ron, Pho, Pon, Yean, Mang, Path, Kong, Yuth, Yean
