Chreb's Group's story

40-year-old Chreb is a villager in a rural village of the Srey Snom district located in the Siem Reap province in Cambodia. She is married and blessed with four children, three of whom (two daughters and one son) are her responsibility and currently in school.

To support her family, Chreb has been working hard as a rice farmer on a five-hectare plot of farmland for 10 years, earning around 10,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day and managing to save approximately 5,000 KHR after factoring in the daily expenses.

Chreb is leading a loan group of three female members, all of whom are first-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva partner), to take out a loan in the amount of 2,500,000 KHR in total.

With this first-time requested loan portion, which is 1,000,000 KHR, the group representative (Chreb) will purchase fertilizer and rice-seed, and cover the cost of labor. After receiving her loan portion and using it in a smart manner, this hard-working woman, Chreb, hopes that her rice-growing business will provide a good quality crop so that she can sell it for greater profit and use the anticipated profit to improve the living standard of her family and keep her beloved children in school.
