Yeth is 28 years old, living in a rural area of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has three daughters, all of whom are still her responsibility and in school. She has been rice farming on one hectare of farmland and potato planting on 1.6 hectares of farmland for ten years to make a living. She can earn approximately KHR 31,700 per day from her current business.
Yeth has been with VisionFund for three cycles and successfully paid back her past loans. She has used the loans from VisionFund successfully to better support her living. In order to support her family's business for a better living, she is applying for a new loan of KHR 2,000,000 to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her business and use a portion of it to spend for land plowing. She hopes to increase her crop yields so as to increase her family's income to improve her standard of living.
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.
