Channy is a 31-year-old married mother of four children who are students at a local public school. Currently, her entire family is living under a thatched house in the Kror Kor district of Pursat province. For the household's financial survival, Channy cultivates rice with her husband, her core income-generating activity. To supplement the family's income, Channy sells spicy papaya salad, meatballs, and soya milk; she has been in this business for four years and is able to earn almost 25,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day.

Channy just joined VisionFund as a first-time borrower. She will use her loan to buy wooden boards for building her house. She hopes to own a decent house, like others, for her children's sake.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
