Chantha's story

Chantha lives in a thatched roof house in a rural village in the Kror Kor district of Pursat province. He 42 years old and married. He and his wife have six children, some of whom are still in school while the others work at the family’s business. He and his wife earn a living through farming rice and making palm juice. They have been in this business for almost twenty years. With his current business, he is able to earn approximately 30,000 KHR per day to support his family.

This is the first loan for Chantha with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. He is applying for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR. He is going to use the loan to renovate his old house. He hopes this loan will enable him to have a decent house for living in so as to improve his lifestyle.
