Residing in Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Seanghai is 26 years old and a hardworking farmer who dedicates all her income for her family primarily to her son. To cover the daily cost of living, she grows rice, pineapples, and raises pigs. She has been involved in this business for 6 years.
Seanghai's past loan was the original loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). That past loan, which has better supported her business as well as her household, has been completely paid back with success. Now, she is requesting another loan for 2,700,000 KHR. She will use this loan to buy fertilizer and pig feed. She hopes that she can make more income from her current business. Therefore, she can keep sustaining her cost of living.
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.
