Hen supplements her income by growing onions and working for others for a fee. She has been in this business for fifteen years. She earns approximately 55,000 KHR per day from the current business, but she can manage to save about 25,000 KHR each day.
Hen has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for five cycles and successfully paid back the loans, while her group co-member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. Hen is leading the group to apply for a loan with VisionFund.
As the leader, Hen is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy gasoline for water-pumping. She hopes to increase her income so as to improve her family's living conditions.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
