A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


Mr. Sovan Mee Village Bank Group's story

This group loan is being requested by fourteen people who live in Kampong Svay Village in Kandal Province. Mr. Sovan M. has been chosen group leader by the members. He is a motorbike taxi driver who is not able to earn enough income to support his family. This is the case even though he also farms a small piece of land on which he grows rice. On this farm, the main problem he faces is poor quality land which needs fertilizer. That is why Mr. Sovan M. is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and make his land more productive. His wife, Mrs. Eng Rotha, is a housewife who takes good care of their family and is an excellent cook. Mr. Sovan M. and his wife have six children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory. Three attend a local school while the remaining two are too young to work or study.

In this group: Sovan, Shun, Pheap, Pheak, Phy, La, Shim, Vanny, Phea, Sareth, Sokheng, Sokha, Phany, Yorn
