Sreyleak, 30, is a citizen from the Kandal Stoeung district of Kandal province. She is a mother of two children who are still too young for schooling. Sreyleak's entire family counts on her rice cropping business and her job working at a factory. She has been occupied in her current business for five years, earning about 18,900 KHR per day.
This is Sreyleak's third loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has repaid her past loan completely and it has improved her living conditions at a good pace. Sreyleak will spend her entire loan to buy rice seed and fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees. She hopes that she can gain a better income than before.
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.
