A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more grocery items to sell.


Chhoeurn's Group's story

Chhoeurn is aged 35, and is living in a rural area of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has two daughters, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school. To support the family, she has farmed rice and raised pigs for ten years and supplemented the income by selling grocery items while her husband works for others for a fee. The current business earns them about 33,000 KHR per day and allows them to save about 20,000 KHR each day for their future needs, after deducting daily expenses. Chhoeurn’s group consists of two members who live in the same village and this is the second loan for her group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The first loan helped her to better support her family. Now she and her group member are requesting a loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy more grocery items to sell. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase further her income so as to make a better living and grow the family’s business progressively.
