Khorn is 46 years old and a married mother of three dependent children, two of whom work as bakers for pay while the last one is at home helping with housework.
To support her family, she has been farming for 15 years and she supplements her income by raising chickens, ducks and pigs. She currently earns about 8 U.S. dollar per day and is able to save around 3 U.S. dollars daily.
This is Khorn's first loan with VisionFund. She will use this loan to buy animal feed for her poultry and also to buy one cow to raise as farming labor.
She hopes to feed her poultry to be fat and increase her crop production so as to 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.
