Morn is 47 years old, and she is widowed and has no kids. She lives in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. Pineapple growing is the main source of her income, in which she has been involved for 11 years. She also works as a paid laborer for others, for extra income.
This is the first cycle loan for her with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is seeking a loan of 3,000,000 KHR. Morn will spend her entire loan to buy fertilizer and seed, and to pay for plowing the land. She hopes to increase her income and earn more 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.
