Samath is part of a loan group through Viva's partner, VisionFund. Her two-member group is made of she and another woman, both of whom have already successfully paid back their first loan. Samath used that first loan to support her family and pay for her children's education. As the group leader for this second loan, she wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes that with these supplies, she can increase her crop yield and earn more income to improve her standard of living.
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.
