Chan's story

Mr. Chan is a 44-year-old man who lives in the Ornlong Veng district of Siem Reap province. Mr. Chan is works very hard in his farming business to earn a living. Mr. Chan has been married for many years to Mrs. Sai, 45, a domestic farmer. And they have seven children, five of whom are single. The other children are already married and live separately. Mr. Chan and his wife are able to generate an income about $7.50 USD each day. During this rainy season, this family has difficulties in living because some parts of their shelter are broken. Thus, Mr. Chan would like to request a loan from Kiva to mend his present house. Mr. Chan proposes to use the remainder of the loan to grow a larger rice crop and also to buy a plow. In the future, Mr. Chan hopes he can send his children to school.
