A loan of $500 helped a member to buy pig feed for his pig business and pesticides for his crops.

Chamroen's Group's story

Chamroen is 24 years old. He is married and resides with his wife and two sons in a rural village of the Kampong Cham province’s Me Mot district.

Cassava growing and pig raising are the primary sources of his family’s income and he has been in this business for four years. His daily income is approximately 27,000 KHR and he can manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses.

Chamroen has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for two cycles and fully paid back the past loan. The other group member is a first-cycle client with VisionFund.

Chamroen successfully and wisely used the previous loan to better support his cassava planting. Now he is leading his group of two to request another loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Chamroen is going to use his portion to buy pig feed for his pig business and to buy pesticides for protecting his crop.

He hopes to grow his crop successfully and also hopes to fatten his pigs so as to increase his income and improve his family’s living conditions.
