Morn, 37, lives in a rural area of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province and she is single. The family’s main source of income is from farming rice. Having been in this business for 17 years, she can earn about 77,000KHR per day and she can save about 40,000KHR each day after deducting daily expenses.
Morn is just with VisionFund for this cycle. She is now applying for a loan to pay for harvesting rice. She hopes to grow more crops so as to make a better living.
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.
