Sreypin lives in Thmor Koul district located in Battamabng province, Cambodia. She is 30 years old and has two dependent sons, both of whom help the family’s business. Sreypin is a cloth-seller and her husband is a barber in the local area to help the family generate their income. They have been in these business for almost ten years. Lack of working capital is the main challenge for Sreypin's business.
Sreypin is in her first loan cycle with VisionFund. She is asking for a loan of US$ 1,000 to buy a motorbike for her family to travel to work. She hopes this loan will enable her family to have a proper motorbike for commuting which in return will save them some time when travelling to work and back home.
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.
