Sithou’s group consists of two members who live in the same village. She is in her first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. Sithou will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farm; he will also use a portion of it to pay for labor. She hopes to increase her family’s income from her current business to reach a higher standard of living and keep her children in school.
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.
