Aged 33 and a resident of Kampong Cham province, Chanthy is married and blessed with two children—one schoolboy and one little boy. She has managed one hectare for growing rice and two hectares for growing cassava. The 13 years of experience in the current business has returned her about 41,000 KHR per day. Chanthy has never been with VisionFund before. She is now seeking 2,000,000 KHR to buy fertilizer and to pay the fees for weeding and plowing. She hopes to grow her cash-crop fruitfully and in a timely fashion so that she can obtain more income to buy an additional plot of farmland to grow more crops.
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.
