Chen's Group's story

Chen, a local villager from Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, is 33 years old and married. She has three kids in school. Her main business is rice cropping. She has been involved in her current business for 15 years, earning about 19,000 KHR per day.

This is the first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for Chen’s group, which consists of four female members. Chen and her co-borrowers are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Chen will spend her loan portion to buy gasoline for her hand-tractor, rice seed, and insecticide for her crops. She hopes to gain a good yield from her business and to improve her lifestyle.
