Hoeurn is 62 years old and married. She is a resident from Moung Russey district of Battambang province. To strive for a living, she does rice farming on a 10-hectare area as the main source of income. It is the business that she has occupied for 20 years, earning about 40,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.
This is the first microloan for Hoeurn with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is seeking 3,000,000 KHR in order to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her crop. She hopes that she can gain a good income from her crop.
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.
