Kean is widowed and has eight children, five of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She has struggled to make a living by working in her rice field for thirty years to feed her children. For the past ten years she has supplemented her earnings by planting cassava. She currently earns less than 5 U.S. dollars a day and saves around two U.S. dollars a day after expenses.

This is Kean's first loan with VisionFund. She will use all of this 250 USD to buy cassava seedlings for her cassava plantation. She hopes to increase her crop yield and earn more income to build her savings.

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.
