Chenda's Group's story

Residing in a rural village in the Kandal Stoeng district, Chenda is a 43-year-old widow. She is blessed with four children, three of whom are employed as workers at a garment factory. This single mother (Chenda) supports the family through farming rice. Having been in the rice-growing business for more than 15 years, Chenda is able to earn around 19,000 KHR per day and save approximately 6,000 KHR after offsetting the daily costs of living.

Chenda’s loan group consists of four female members, all of whom are first-time borrowers with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. As a group leader, she is leading her group to take out a loan in the amount of 160,000 KHR each. Chenda will utilize her loan portion to build a latrine for use in her family. This industrious mother will be able to create a healthier environment not only for herself but also for her beloved children. Chenda can also promote sanitation and hygiene practices in her community as well after having this latrine properly installed.
