Chhouy's Group's story

Chhouy, 57, lives in a rural village of Banteay Meanchey province’s Mongkul Borey district, Cambodia. She is married and has seven children. For the last 37 years, Chhouy has been farming rice and catching fish. To supplement the income, her husband also works for others for a fee. The current business earns her about 40,000 KHR per day. Chhouy has been a member of Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for four cycles already, and she completely repaid the loans. She has used the past loan wisely and successfully to improve her family’s livelihood. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy materials for renovating her old house. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a decent house for living in.
