Chanthou's Group's story

Chanthou is 48 years old, married and a mother of four children, two of whom (a son and a daughter) still live at home and attend school. She lives in Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, where she and her husband earn a decent life for the family by farming rice and planting corn. They have been in this line of work for about 10 years and earn about 45,000 KHR daily. Chanthou is requesting her third loan from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has successfully used her previous two loans to improve her family's life. She is requesting a new loan to pay for the cost of hiring people to help out on her farm. She leads a three-person loan group in which each member is requesting a loan for 1,000,000 KHR. She believes that this loan will give her a better crop and help her advance the education of her school-aged children.
