Ches' Group's story

Residing in a rural village of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Ches is aged 39 and married with five children, three daughters and two sons. Her family’s income is mainly from cassava planting on three-hectares of farmland to support her big family. Having been in this business for almost twenty years, she is able to earn about 27,800 KHR per day to spend for daily expenses.

This is the first loan for Ches with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group member who has been with VisionFund two loan cycles to apply for a loan of 1,000,000KHR and 1,400,000KHR respectively. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it for labor. With this loan, she hopes to increase her cassava crops so as to make more income and also hopes to make a living better.
