A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a piece of land.

Chhay's story

Mrs. Chhay is a single mother who, at 56 years old, is still working hard. To make a living, she cultivates rice crops in Prey Chor district. She usually grows rice twice a year, during both the rainy and dry seasons, earning an average of $2.50 per day. She has six children, three of whom are already married. Currently however, one of her married daughters doesn’t own a house and is living with Chhay at home.

Mrs. Chhay wants this loan in order to buy a piece of land, on which she will build a thatched house for her daughter to live with her own family. The land is in a good location, where Chhay’s daughter can operate a business selling things to the local people. Chhay is very happy and appreciative of the support from Kiva lenders.
