Yan, 54, lives with her husband and four children in a rural village of the Bovel district, Cambodia. Two of her four children are still in school. To feed the family, Phoeun and her husband earn a living as farmers who have been farming rice for 18 years, earning about 55,000 KHR per day to spend for the family’s needs.
Yan is just with VisionFund for this cycle. She is applying for a loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to make more income 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.
