Boret, 41 years old, is a widow living in a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal, Cambodia. She earns a living by working as a garment worker and she has been in this business for five years, earning about US$12 per day. She is able to save about US$6 each day for future needs.
Boret has been a member of VisionFund for three cycles and she completely repaid the past loans, which have helped her relieve her family’s financial burden and support her business. She is requesting another loan with VisionFund to buy a vehicle to commute to work. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a proper vehicle to go to work.
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.
