Chorn's Group's story

Chorn is 45 years of age and married. Her family resides in a rural village of Dambae district located in Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. Chorn has six children, five (two daughters and three sons) of whom are students and dependent on her. To earn finances for the family, she has a business planting cassava and cashews, earning around 50,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) and saving approximately 20,000 KHR for future needs after offsetting her daily expenses.

Chorn is leading a loan group of two women, both of whom are first-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) to apply for a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. This group representative, Chorn, will utilize her loan portion in this loan to purchase fertilizer and pesticide to apply to her farmland in hopes of keeping it in good shape. Chorn hopes to be able to earn more income, improve the living conditions of her family, and most importantly, be able to advance her children’s education further.
