Rice farming is the main source of her income, and she earns extra income via paid work in order to cover her daily cost of living in her household. She is in the second cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and she has completely repaid her past loan.

She strongly hopes to earn more income from her 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.
