Age 47 and a resident from the Kror Kor district of Pursat Province, Samoun is married and blessed with one child who is a student in the local state school. For her child's sake, Samoun cultivates rice and raises pigs as the main source of income. The current business, which she has been involved for 12 years, has returned her about 32,000 KHR per day.

This is not the first loan for Samoun with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has successfully used her past three loans with success to upgrade her lifestyle in a good way and has fully repaid her past loans. For this loan cycle, she will spend her loan portion in the amount of 4,000,000 KHR to repair her house. She hopes that she can renovate her house on time so she does not need to worry about the upcoming rainy season, especially for her child.

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.
