Tis, age 43, is a widow and has four children. Tis and her children are living in the Kror Kor district of Pursat Province. She solely depends on a single business, rice farming on a two-hectare area. She has been farming for 30 years and is able to generate up to 19,600 KHR per day.

Tis has taken two loans before this one. She succeeded in using her past loan to support her business on time. Now, she wants to focus on her house's condition. Therefore, she is applying for a new loan, which she will use to buy wooden boards with which to renovate her house, especially the wall. She hopes this purchase will enable her to fix her wall timely, so that she can own a decent house for her kids.

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.
