For the children's sake, she and her husband overcame the family's hardships by selling their handmade fish traps. They have been with this business for 15 years and are able to earn almost 15,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day.
Khorn is new to VisionFund (a Kiva partner), the same as her group members. Her group has four members; all are female. She leads this group to seek a new loan, and each member is taking a loan of 1,000,000 KHR. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy bamboo for making more fish traps and a portion of it to buy pigs for raising as extra income. She hopes to make more income in order to sustain a good standard of living for her family.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
