Chanthou's story

Living in the rural area of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia, Chanthou is 45 years old. She is a widow and the mother of two children, one of whom is still in school.

To earn a living, Chanthou has been working in a rice field. She also supplements the family’s income by selling grocery items. She has been in this business for 15 years.

Chanthou has been with VisionFund for two cycles and has successfully paid back the loans. The past loans have helped her to earn more income to support her family and enable her to earn about 112,000 KHR per day.

Now Chanthou is applying for a new loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000 KHR. With this loan, she will buy fertilizers for her farmland and grocery items such as canned foods, soap, food ingredients, etc. for selling. She hopes to earn more income so she can keep her son in school.
