A citizen from a rural village of Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Nary is 20 years, married and has one son who is still small. To make a living and support her family, Nary and her husband have been farming rice and pineapple as a primary business. The current business earns her family about US $10 per day to meet the family’s need.
This is the third micro loan for Nary with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She completely paid back the past loans which have helped her improve her family’s livelihood. Now she is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to cultivate her rice and pineapples to earn more income to improve her lifestyle.
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.
