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

A loan helped to buy fish and other fishing materials.

Chhengvan's story

Chhengvan is 44 years old, married and is the mother of one child. She is in the fishing business. Her husband is a construction worker. She has been running this business for seven years.

Chhengvan has applied for a 3,000,000 KHR loan through Kiva's field partner Chamroeun to buy fish and other fishing materials. Using the loan, she will be able to earn more income to continue her business as well as support her family's living standards. She hopes that she can grow her business, renovate her home and send her child to school.

Her main challenges are more competitors and the rainy season.
