Thorn is 60 years old and lives with her husband and four children in a rural village of the Samki Meanchey district. Rice farming is the only main source for her family’s income, and she has been farming for about 30 years. To supplement the income, she also sells grocery items. The current business earns her family the daily income of about 60,000 KHR.
Thorn has been with VisionFund for two cycles and fully paid back the past loans. Now she is applying for a loan to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to make more crops 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.
