A young mother age 25, Rith is a citizen from Kror Kor district of Pursat province. She has one child under her care. To support the entire household, she farms rice on two hectares of land as the main source of her income. Her husband generates additional income by producing and selling rice wine and by raising pigs. This is Rith's second cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has repaid her previous loan wisely to provide daily decent meals for her child. Now, she is seeking 2,000,000 KHR in order to pay the plowing fee for her farmland. She hopes that her rice this season will produce a good yield.
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.
