Living in a rural village of the Dambae district, Sreang is 34 years old and married, with two children. The main source of the family’s income is from selling grocery items. She and her husband have been in this business for 14 years.
Sreang is just with VisionFund Cambodia for this cycle and now she is applying for a loan. She wants to use her loan to buy more grocery items to resell. She hopes to make more income to improve her standard of 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.
