Chreng is a 25-year-old mother of two children, living in a rural village of the Storng district, Cambodia. One of her children is in school while the other one is too young for school. To make a living, she and her husband have been farming rice and fishing for almost six years. The current business earns her about 26,000 KHR per day. Chreng is just with VisionFund for this cycle. Now, she is seeking a loan to buy fishing materials to support her business. She hopes to catch more fish, so as to improve her standard of 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.
