A loan of $425 helped a member to buy rice seed to plough into her rice farming business and to buy pig feed.

Chanra's Group's story

Chanra, 36, is a rural farmer from the Sangke district of Battambang province. She has three children to cater for, as they are still in school.

The main source of her family's income is a dual income, as her husband works for others for a fee, while Chanra earns another income from rice cropping and a pig raising business.

This is the business that she has had for 10 years, earning about 28,300 KHR per day. Chanra has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for two cycles including this loan. The past loan enabled her to improve her living conditions and expand her business at a gradual pace; she has also repaid her past loan with success.

Now, in a group of two, she is a leader. She is seeking 1,200,000 KHR, while her joint member is applying for 500,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion on buying rice seed to plough into her rice farming business and pig feed.

She hopes that she can earn more income to expand her businesses on a larger scale.
