Originally from Kampong Cham province, Hak is married and blessed with seven children. Currently, her main source of income comes from farming one hectare of land in rice and raising eight pigs. She earns about 39,600 KHR per day. Hak has never had a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before. She is seeking a 2,000,000 KHR loan in order to buy potash, rice seed, and pig feed. She hopes these purchases will support her business on time with a good profit.
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.
