A loan of $500 helped a member to purchase fertilizer.


Chaingoun's Group's story

A 43-year-old married woman, Chaingoun is a villager residing in Kampong Cham province’s Tbaung Khmum district, in Cambodia. She has seven children, of whom five daughters are under her responsibility. Chaingoun and her husband earn their living through farming rice and planting cassava, the business in which they have been involved for more than twenty years. They are able to earn approximately 12,000 KHR per day and manage to save around 4,000 KHR, after paying their daily expenses.

Chaingoun is leading a group member to apply for a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR, each. For both of them, this will be their first time requesting a loan from VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Chaingoun, the group leader, will use her loan portion to purchase fertilizer to apply to her farmland. This hard-working woman would be very happy to be able to receive the loan portion that she has requested. Via the help of this loan portion, Chaingoun believes that her business will provide her with good quality crop yields so that she can boost her income and better support her family.
