Yoeurn is 41 years old and a married mother blessed with two schoolchildren. To provide decent meals for her kids, she not only grows vegetables to sell but also buys vegetables from others for resale as well. With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), she is in her seventh cycle with a successful repayment of her past loans. Now, her living condition is getting better than before. For this cycle, she is applying for a new loan in order to buy more vegetables for resale as well as to buy fertilizer for her vegetable garden. She hopes to gain more income 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.
