A loan of $1,000 helped to run a new business as a clothing seller.

Chanthou's story

A resident of a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district of Cambodia, Chanthou is 29 years old and married. The main source of her family’s income is from work in a local garment factory. She and her husband have been garment workers for six years. With her current job, she can earn about 28,000 Cambodian riel (KHR) per day to spend on daily expenses.

This is Chanthou's second loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She has successfully paid back the first loan with VisionFund. She is now asking for another loan of 4,000,000 KHR to run a new business as a clothing seller. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her new business and improve her standard of living.
