Chantha's Group's story

Originally from a rural village located in the Ek Phnom district, Chantha is a 32-year-old widow with only one son who works at the family’s business. She has earned a living through farming rice, planting beans and watermelon as the main source of the family’s income for several years. Sometimes Chantha and her son catch fish for sale to generate additional income for the family. With her business, she has been facing floods and unhealthy crops, which are her main challenges. Chantha is in her fifth loan cycle while her other group member is in her second loan cycle with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She completely paid back the past loans, which have helped her make a good living. Now she is able to earn a daily income of around 19,000 KHR. She is leading her group of two to apply for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to increase her family’s income and make a better living.
