Chreub is 41 years old and married with two children. She is a farmer, and she also raises pigs. Her husband is a construction worker. She has been raising pigs and farming her rice field for 18 years.
This is her first loan with VisionFund. Chreub requested a loan to buy fertilizers for her rice field and also to buy food for her pigs. With this loan, she hopes to increase her income, feed her pigs to be healthy and fat, keep her children in school, buy necessary household stuff, and save some money for her family’s expenses.
About VisionFund Cambodia
VisionFund Cambodia is a Christian organization and microfinance institution that provides small loans and other financial services to improve the lives of children, empower poor women and their families, and grow successful businesses. The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.
Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.
