Channy's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to open a grocery store and buy products, such as sweets, snacks, cigarettes, drinks, food ingredients, and other household products to resell.


Channy's story

Channy and her family live in the rural village of Stung Treng Province of Cambodia. She has a large family that is comprised of five members, including her and her husband. Her children attend school and are dependent on her income.

Channy is engaged in selling at her small store on her own land. Her husband is a construction worker in her community. Both of them can make a net income of only $9 per day which is barely enough to support her expense. She and her husband work very hard to improve her family's living standard.

Due to inadequate capital, Channy is asking for a loan in the sum of KHR 6,000,000 to open a grocery store and buy products, such as sweets, snacks, cigarettes, drinks, food ingredients, and other household product to resell.

In the future she wants to renovate her house and encourage her children to continue studying at university.

Channy sends thanks to all lenders for their support of her family, including her business and improving her income.
