Residing in Kampong Cham Province's Dambae District in Cambodia, Leang is 63
To earn a living for his family, he has been working so hard in his rice growing business and cassava planting business for more than twenty years. Leang has been with VisionFund, Kiva's partner, for a loan cycle already, with which he succeeded in securing food needs for his family.
Now he is applying for a new loan with VisionFund in the amount of 3,000,000 KHR. With this new requested loan, Leang will spend some portion of it on purchasing fertilizer, rice seed, and pesticide. The other portion of the loan will be spent on covering the cost of labor.
Leang would love to dedicate all of the efforts that he has put into his work to moving his family ahead and advancing his children's education.
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.
