Originally from a village of Kampong Cham province’s Prey Chor district, Sinat is aged 39 years and married with three children. For more than 15 years, she and her husband have been farming rice as the primary source of the family’s income and they can earn about KHR 66,000 per day and manage to save about 20,000 KHR each day for future needs.
Sinat has been a member of VisionFund for four cycles already and she wisely and successfully used the first loans to make her living conditions better. She is going to use this loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. This loan will enable her to extend her farmland to increase her rice farming production to grow more rice and improve her family’s lifestyle.
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.
