A loan of $1,550 helped a member buy more piglets for breeding.

Mrs. Rim Meak Village Bank Group's story

Sixteen people in the Krang Ta Chan village in the Takeo province are requesting a group loan. Mrs. Rim M. is the village bank president. She is a rice farmer, and owns 0.5-hectare, and also breeds pigs. This business is going well, so she is requesting a loan to buy more piglets for breeding. Her husband, Mr. U. Voeurn, is a construction worker who earns a small income to support his family.

Mrs. Rim M. is 43 years old and the mother of six children; two children help their mother in the pig-breeding business; three children attend the local school; and the youngest one is 5 years old.

Mrs. K. Sitha's husband is also requesting a loan (pictured here).
The other members of this group loan have a variety of businesses for which they are requesting a loan.

In this group: Thol, Yang, Rim, Korn, Yorng, Sitha, Rai, Sarann, Mom, Thea, Reim, Ry, Ren, Mall, Lem, Sophoan
