A loan of $1,275 helped a member to lease farmland to grow cassava.


Chhai's Group's story

Chhai is a 48-year-old, married woman from a rural village in the Tbaung Khmum district, Kampong Cham province. She is blessed with six children. To address her daily cost of living, she grows rice on 1.5 hectares and plants cassava on one hectare of farmland. She is able to earn about 19,000 KHR per day from her current business, which she has been with for ages.

This is the third loan for Chhai with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has wisely managed her past loan to sustain her business and living, especially being able to afford sufficient, decent food for her kids. Now, she leads a group of four to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to lease a plot of farmland in order to grow more cassava. She hopes that she can earn triple the income from her current businesses.
