Vann is a hard working father of one daughter. He is also a resident of Battamang Province, Cambodia. To support themselves, he and his wife do rice farming as their core income generating business. To earn extra profit, his wife also sells sweets. He has been involved in this business for several years.
Vann has just joined VisionFund this cycle as a first time borrower. He is seeking for 4,000,000 KHR in order to buy fertilizer for his rice farm. Some portion of his loan will also go to buy necessary ingredients for his wife to make sweets that she can sell. He hopes to make more profit from this dual income so that he can gradually improve his standard 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.
