A loan of $500 helped to renovate her old house.

Chanrun's story

Chanrun is a 21-year-old farmer who lives in a rural area of the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, Cambodia. She is married with one dependent daughter who is still under school age. She has been farming rice on a 2-hectare area of farmland for four years while her husband has been working as a teacher in the local area to earn additional income. The current business earns her family approximately 18,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day and allows them to save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

This is the first microloan for Chanrun with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She is asking for a loan of US $500 from VisionFund. Chanrun is going to use her loan to renovate her old house. She hopes this loan will enable her family to have a proper house for living in.
