Saran's group, for which she is the leader, consists of four women who live in the same village of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She and her group members are first-time borrowers with Kiva's partner, VisionFund.
Saran will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland and pay for labor costs in transplanting rice seedlings. She hopes to grow her rice fruitfully so as to sell it for a good price to improve her living conditions.
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.
