An, 49 years old, lives in Pursat province's Kror Kor district in Cambodia. She is married and blessed with seven children, one of whom (a son) is under her responsibility and currently in school. To make a living, An works as a rice farmer while her husband makes palm juice to earn more income for the family. Together, this hardworking couple can earn around 20,000 KHR per day.

This is An's first time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She is seeking a KHR 1,000,000 loan to build a comfortable house for her children. After receiving and using the loan as she plans, An will be very satisfied to see her children have an appropriate house to live in.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
