Choeurt's Group's story

Chhoeurt is 53 and a local villager from Battambang province. He has six children, two of whom still depend on him as they are still in school. For him, rice farming is the primary source of income, which he has been with for 34 years, earning about 26,000 KHR per day. With this loan, he will be a fourth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He has succeeded in managing his past loans, which he has repaid completely to support his living as well as his business. Now, he joins a group of two to apply for a new loan as he is in need of working capital. As the group leader, he will use his loan portion to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and to pay for the plowing fee. He hopes to double his income and make more profit.
