Chan's story

Chan, a married mother of three kids, is a local farmer from the Moung Russey district of Battambang Province. She makes a living through rice cultivation and pineapple growing, from which she is able to earn up to 22,500 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.

This is the second loan for Chan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The past loan, which she has repaid, has successfully supported her life as well as her business at a good pace. Now, she is in need of working capital to support her farmland. Therefore, she applied for a new loan in the amount of 4,000,000 KHR in order to buy potash, and to pay other necessary fees, including the plowing fee and labor fee. She hopes that she can gain a high yield from her crops so that she can sustain her living conditions.
