Chanda's Group's story

Chanda is aged 27 years and married, with one dependent son who is still too young for school. She lives in a rural village of the Pursat province’s Kror Kor district and earns a living through farming rice.

To add up more income, she has been selling fish and vegetables in the local area to better support the family. She can earn about KHR 40,000 per day from the current business and can save about KHR 20,000 each day for future needs.

This is Chanda’s first group loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan of KHR 1,000,000 each, Chanda, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy more various kinds of fish and vegetables for selling.

She hopes to grow her business and earn a larger income to improve her standard of living.
