Mrs. Uon Huot Village Bank Group's story

Fourteen people who all live in Krang Sromor Village in Kampong Chhnang Province make up this village bank loan group, and they plan to use the loan ifor different purposes. Mrs. Uon H. is the village bank president. She is a farmer who owns 1 hectare where she cultivates rice to earn her living. Her husband, Mr. Tim Phat, is a palm juice collector who gathers juice to process into palm wine and palm sugar.

Unfortunately, in his business, her husband faces a small problem because he does not have enough equipment to climb the trees to gather the juice. In order to deal with this problem, Mrs. Uon H. decided to ask for a loan to buy bamboo to tie to the palm trees in order to climb up to gather juice.

Mrs. Uon H. is the mother of four children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory while the youngest one is too young to work or study because that child is only two years old.

Another borrower, Mrs.Sang S., did not come to take the loan but her husband did, so he is in the photo instead of her.

In this group: Uon, Kheng, Ren, Khorn, Min, Roeurng, Chantha, Rorn, Sarun, Rem, Khim, Sang, Neang, Yat
