Chanleak's Group's story

Chanleak, 35, is married and has three children. She is a resident from Moung Russey district of Battambang province. To support her living, she does rice farming and corn growing as the main source of family income. She has been involved in the current business for 10 years.

Chanleak is not a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Her past loan was the first loan with VisionFund. She has completely repaid her past loan with success, and it has enabled her to upgrade her lifestyle in a gradual manner.

Now, she is in a group of three to apply for a new loan. The total loan amount of her requested loan is 3,600,000 KHR (Cambodian riels). As the group leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and insecticide, and to pay for labor. She hopes that she will gain a good yield, better than last year's.
