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

A loan helped to buy equipment for cooking service.

Chanthu's story

Chanthu. is 33, married and has three lovely children. Chanthu and her husband engaged in careers as chefs in their community to cook and sold to the clients for more than ten years. Both of them can make a net income of only $12 per day which is barely enough to support her family's expenses everyday.

Due to the shortage in her finances, Chanthu has applied a loan in the amount of USD 1,000 to buy equipment for cooking service. By using this loan she hopes that she can gets more additional income and has enough equipment for cooking food to sell.

Chanthu sends thanks to all lenders for their support of her family.
