Chet's story

Chet, age 22, is single, living with his parents in a village located in the Sa Ang district. He makes his own living through farming rice and planting cucumbers and he supplements his income by fishing in the village. This business enables him to earn around 50,000 KHR per day to spend for daily expenses, and he is able to save around 16,000 KHR each day. He has been in this business for several years.

This is the first loan for Chet with Kiva's field partner, VisionFund. Now requesting a loan, he will use it to buy a boat with an engine for fishing and use a portion of it to buy fertilizer for his farmland. With this loan, he hopes to grow his business and make a living better.
