Residing in a rural village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Nat is aged 37 years and married. She has four children, three of whom are still in school. To support the family, she and her husband have been in rice farming for 15 years. The current business earns her family about 34,000 KHR per day to meet her family’s needs.
Nat has been with VisionFund for one cycle and has completely paid back the past loan. Now she is applying for a loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to earn 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.
