Chandy's Group's story

Chandy, 33, lives with her husband and two children in a village of Kampong Cham province’s Ponhea Krek district. All of her children are still in school. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice and raising pigs for several years. Chandy has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for three loan cycles and has completely paid back her loans. With the loans from VisionFund, she has managed to improve her livelihood and to send her children to school and keep them there. She is leading her group to apply for a loan. She is going to use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for her rice paddy and will use a portion of it to pay for labor. With this loan, she hopes to increase her family’s income, so as to make a better living.
