Dy, a 30-year-old mother of one little kid, is a local farmer on one hectare of farmland. The rest of her family is living in Sampov Meas District of Pursat Province. She does rice cropping as her primary source of income, while her husband works at construction sites to supplement their income. She has been in business for four years, earning about 18,400 riels (KHR) per day.

Dy is a third-time borrower with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She has wisely utilized her past loan with success to support her business on time. Now, she is seeking 1,500,000 KHR in order to buy necessary materials to build her house. She hopes that she can own a decent house for her family – especially her kid – to live in.

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.
