Sovang, 48, is a parent of seven children. She is a villager from Sa Ang district of Kandal province. To strive for a living for her three dependent kids, she works at a factory. She has occupied her job for five years.
Sovang is not new to VisionFund as she is a third-cycle client with VisionFund. Her past loans have enabled her to support her family and keep her kids in school. With this new loan, she is seeking to buy a decent motorbike for commuting and to renovate her house. She hopes this purchase will minimize the transportation costs which she used to cover and enable her to renovate her house in a timely manner.
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.
