Mrs. Mom Marm Village Bank Group's story

This village bank, which consists of twenty members, is located in Preaek Doung village in Kandal province, and they plan to use the loan for different purposes. Mrs. Mom M. is the village bank president, and she was selected by the members. She is a fruit seller in the local market. Aside from this business, she owns a phone service for people. Her husband, Mr. Bey Sopheap, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where he cultivates both rice and vegetables. However, he now faces an obstacle because his field is infertile and this has damaged his crop. In order to deal with this problem, Mrs. Mom M. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer, and she will use the rest of money to purchase gasoline to use to water the field and make her crop more productive. She is 42 years old and the mother of three children who are attending the local school. Mrs. L. Loem was not present to take out a loan but her husband was, so he is presented in the picture.
