Kheang, 51, lives with her husband and four children in a village in Kampong Cham province’s Cheung Prey district, Cambodia. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice and raising pigs. The current business earns her about 44,000KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.
Kheang has been with Kiva partner VisionFund for one cycle. She is now applying for a loan. She is going to use her loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to make 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.
