A mother of four kids, Channy is 26 years old and strives for a living via paddy farming and working at construction sites. She has been involved in her current business for 12 years. This is not Channy's first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has paid back her past loan with success to improve her living, especially by providing daily, decent food for her kids. For this cycle, she is seeking a new loan of 2,500,000 KHR in order to buy fertilizer for her farmland, to pay for plowing fees, and to buy a decent motorbike to support her business. She hopes to support her business on time.
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.
