Mab, age 39, is a cassava farmer. She lives with her husband in Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district. She earns a daily income from her cassava farm, which she has managed for three years. This agribusiness brings her about 33,000 KHR per day.
Mab is in her fourth loan cycle loan with Kiva partner VisionFund and has repaid her previous loans successfully. The loans have helped her to stabilize her business at a steady pace. She is now requesting a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 KHR, which she will use to pay plowing fees and labor costs as well as to buy cassava seedlings and insecticide for her farm.
Her goal is to receive a good yield and increase her income.
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.
