Chanthou's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy bananas, potatoes, and oil for her business.

Chanthou's story

Chanthou is a 47-year-old widow and a mother of two children. She sells fried bananas and potatoes. One child is a construction worker and the other is employed at a factory. Chanthou has been operating her business for four years.

She applied for a Kiva loan of 3,000,000 KHR from Chamroeun to buy bananas, potatoes, and oil for her business. With this loan, she will be able to generate more income so that she can continue her business and improve her family’s standard of living. Chanthou hopes to grow her business, renovate her home, and support her children’s education.

Her main challenges are the presence of more competitors and having insufficient capital.
