A loan of $600 helped to buy a decent motorbike for his business.


Chantha's story

Chantha, 31, is from a rural village located in the Sa Ang of Kandal province in Cambodia. He is married with two children, who are in school. He and his wife earn a living by making snacks to sell in the village. They have been in this business for six years. The current business earns his family about US $5 per day and allows him to save about US $2 each day after daily expenses.

Chantha's microloan is through Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, and he is a first time borrower. Now he is applying for a loan. With this loan he is going to buy a decent motorbike to support his business. He hopes to earn more income from his snack selling, so as to set aside some money to fulfill his dream of keeping his children in school.
