Im, 60, is married, and living with her family in a village of the Cheung Prey district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has four children. For the last 40 years Im and her husband have been growing rice on a two-hectare farmland as the main source of family’s income. Together, they can earn about 20,000 KHR per day from the current business.
Im is just with VisionFund this cycle. Now she is requesting a loan of 1,500,000 KHR to buy fertilizer, rice seeds and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to timely grow her rice 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.
