A loan of $2,850 helped a member to ask for a loan to buy rice seeds and for fuel for a pump to make her crop more productive.

Mrs. Savoeung Sok Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan, which consists of twenty people, is located in Preaek Pang village in Kandal Province. The members will use the loan which they obtained for different purposes. Mrs. Savoeung S. is a village bank president who has been selected by the members. She and her husband, Mr. Keit Chamroeun, are grocers in the local village. Aside from this business, Mr. Keit Chamroeun is a farmer who cultivates rice on a piece of land to earn a living. In this plantation, he faces an obstacle because he does not have enough money to buy rice seeds to cultivate, so Mrs. Savoeung S. decided to ask for a loan to buy rice seeds to cultivate rice. She will use the rest of the loan to buy fuel to support a pump to make her crop more productive. She is 43 years old and the mother of four children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory; the remaining three are attending the local school. Mrs. Savoeung S. did not come to take the loan, but her husband did so he is shown in the picture instead.
