Vorn is a citizen from Battambang province. She has three dependent children, two schoolchildren and one younger kid. Her main source of income is from maize farming, which she has done for 12 years. It has returned her about 20,700 KHR per day. Vorn is the first time borrower with VisonFund (Kiva’s partner). Now, she is seeking a new loan to pay for labor costs and buy corn seeds for her agribusiness. Besides those, she will spend her loan portion to buy more grocery items to replenish her business. She hopes to make more income and improve her family’s living condition better than before.
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.
