Mom and her husband earn their living through farming rice. Each day, she can earn around 24,000 KHR. She is a fifth-cycle client with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The past successful loans, which she has fully paid back, have enabled her to relieve her family's burden and improve their livelihood progressively. She is now leading a group of two members to request a new loan--the other member is a sixth-cycle client with VisionFund. As a group leader, Mom will use her new loan portion to purchase fertilizers for her farmland and a small portion of it to cover her household expenses (food). She highly hopes that her rice field will provide her with a higher crop yields and a higher income.
About VisionFund CambodiaVisionFund 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.
