Tompor is 30 years old, married, and has three children, one of whom attends school. She lives with her family in a village of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. For the last six years, Tompor and her husband have been farming rice on four-hectare farmland as the main source of family’s income. Together, they earn about 60,000 KHR per day.
Tompor is requesting her second loan from VisionFund, which she will use to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will improve her crop yield so as to make a living better and keep her child in school.
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.
