Chanthy's Group's story

Chanthy is a borrower from Mongkul Borey district of Banteay Meanchey province. She is 39 years old and the mother of four children, two of whom are in school and the other two are too young for schooling. To support her family, Chanthy does rice farming on two hectares of farmland as the main source of income and also works as a paid worker for more income. She has done this business for 11 years and she earns 28,800 KHR per day.

Chanthy has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past three cycles which she has successfully repaid. The past loans have helped her to improve her lifestyle from what it was before. Now, she is the leader of a group consisting of two people: this is the fourth loan for Chanthy and the first loan for her co-borrower. Both group members are each seeking the same loan amount of 500,000 KHR. As the group leader, Chanthy will use her loan portion to pay for reaping fees. She hopes that she can harvest rice on time with a good income in return.
