Se is a rural villager from the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. She is married and has four children. Rice farming and grocery selling are the main sources of her family's income, and she has worked for 15 years in order to provide for her family's daily necessities.
She is a seven-cycle loan client with VisionFund. Her past loans, which she has repaid successfully, relieved her family's burdens and replaced them with a standard lifestyle.
Now she is seeking a new loan of 2,000,000 KHR. She is going to use this to buy more grocery items for resale. She hopes to make more income from this business so she can keep making her living conditions better.
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.
