Toerng, 25, is married with two children residing in a rural village located in the Siem Reap province’s Srey Snom district, Cambodia. She has two children. For the last seven years, she has been farming rice and growing cassava. The current business earns her about 35,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day to meet the family’s needs.
Toerng has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and completely paid back the past loan. Now she is applying for a loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to make more income from her current business.
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.
