A loan of $800 helped to buy more coconuts to resell.

Chun's story

Chum is 49 years old. She is a widowed mother living in a rural village of Ek Phnom district in Battambang province. She has six children, two of whom are dependent on her and still attend school. As a widow, she has been involved in selling coconuts for 16 years to better feed the family. The main challenge she faces is the low price of coconuts.

Chum is a new borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of $800 from VisionFund. Chum is going to use a portion of this loan to buy more coconuts to resell. She will use the remaining portion of it to buy a proper computer for her children’s education. Through this loan, she hopes to grow her current business in order to earn a larger income to improve her family’s living conditions and keep her children in school.
