As a married mother of five, Saroeurn has been growing cassava for three years to support her family. Selling rice and Chinese noodles soup is her other source of income. She has been selling such food for four years. Saroeurn and her family live in a wooden house located in Kompong Cham province. Saroeurn obtained her first loan from Kiva's field partner, VisionFund in 2010. The past two loans have helped Saroeurn to sufficiently provide for her family's daily life and to afford the children's school fees. Saroeurn is now applying for another loan from VisionFund after successfully repaying all her previous obligations. She is planning to use this loan to buy seedlings and fertilizers for her cassava plantation. She wishes that this loan will enable her to grow good-yield crops so that she can sell them for a higher price and in return her family can live in better conditions and set aside money for her kids's school fees until they graduate and find good jobs.

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.
