A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland.


Channy's Group's story

Originally from a village of the Ratanak Mondul district of Battambang province, Channy is 29-years-old and married. She is the mother of two dependent children, one daughter and one son who are under-aged for schooling.

She has been in rice farming on one hectare of farmland and she plants corn on another hectare. She also supplements her family’s income by selling custard-apples to feed the family. Having been in this business for ten years, she is able to earn KHR 10,000 per day. However, lacking of capital for her business is still the main challenge.

Channy’s group consists of three members and she is the group leader. This is the first microloan for her with Kiva’s partner, VisonFund. Channy, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and to pay for the plowing fee for her farmland. She hopes to increase her family’s income so as to improve her living’s status.
