Sok, age 26 and married, is a peasant from Kror Kor District of Pursat Province who grows paddy rice on one and a half hectares. To earn extra income, her husband also drives a tricycle motorbike during his spare time. She has three children, one of whom is still in school. Sok is able to generate about 26,000 riels (KHR) per day from the current business that she has been with for 20 years.

Sok's prior loan was a first loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She has utilized her past loan smartly to support her living in a standard condition, and she was able to buy household materials after offsetting basic needs. Now she is seeking 2,500,000 KHR in order to build a decent house for her family. She hopes to own proper housing conditions to live in, so she does not need to worry during unpredictable weather issues.

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.
