Samnang is a 39-year-old mother of two children. One of them is still in school and depends on her. She and her husband are working for others, for a fee, as a main source of her family’s income. She has been doing this work for one year, and it has returned her about 37,300 KHR per day.

This is Samnang’s second loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely repaid the previous loan, and it has helped her to provide a decent home for her family's living. So now, she requested a new loan, which she will use to renovate her home. With this loan, she hopes to provide a house with the standard living conditions, and keep her child in school.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
