Living in a wooden house located in Dambae district, Ngor and her husband have been growing cassava and rubber trees for ten years to support the family. The business earns them on average 16 US dollar per day. Ngor has five children and four of them are in school and living with the family. Ngor obtained the first loan from VisionFund in 2011 and until now she had received two loans both of which are now completely repaid. The past two loans helped Ngor to better support her family. Ngor is now applying for another loan hoping to get the money to buy seedlings for her farmland and fertilizers and equipment such as bowls for her rubber plantation . She really hopes this loan can help to increase her crop yield so as to generate more income to afford her children's school fees until they finish school.
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.
