Thorn and her husband are hard-working farmers who earn a living by farming rice and raising pigs. They have farmed for almost 10 years. Sometimes, Thorn works for others for a fee. With the current business, they earn about 23,000 Cambodian riel per day to meet the family’s need.
Thorn has been with VisionFund for four cycles and has completely repaid previous loans, which have helped the family’s business. She is now leading her group in its request for a loan. As the leader, she will buy fertilizers, pesticides and seeds for her farmland and use a portion for labour.
She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income and make a better living.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
