A villager in a village located in an area of the Sa Ang district, Khorn is aged 52 and married. He has four children but only two of them (one daughter and one son) are still dependent on him. His son is still in school while his daughter is at home helping with the family's housework and business. Khorn and his wife earn a living through planting cabbage and pepper. He has been in this business for 30 years.
Khorn has been with VisionFund for 1 year. The loan has helped him to send his son to school and support his family better. Now he is requesting another loan with VisionFund of US $1,000. He is going to use this loan to buy cabbage seeds and gasoline to carry water for his vegetable plantation. This loan will enable him to grow more healthy cabbage. He hopes to earn more income and keep his son in school.
About VisionFund Cambodia

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.
