Choey lives in a rural village of Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Cambodia. She is married and has two children. Choey has been in farming rice. The current business earns her about 29,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.
Choey is just with VisionFund this cycle. Now she is applying for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR to buy fertilizer for her rice farming. She hopes this loan will enable her to produce more crops, so as to sell it for a good price.
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.
