Chhin is 52 years old and married. She has four children, one of whom is still in school while her remaining three children are employed. She lives in a wooden house covered by zinc in the Sa Ang district of Kandal Provice, Cambodia. Chhin's main source of income is her four-hectare rice farm. After helping on the rice farm, her husband catches fish to sell for extra income. Chhin has had her current business for 32 years, and she is able to save up to 5 US dollars per day after expenses. Chhin has just joined VisionFund (Kiva's partner) this loan cycle. She is seeking a loan of 750 US dollars in order to buy a small boat and a machine for her husband's fishing business. She hopes that her husband can catch more fishes and sell them at a high price so that she can upgrade her living conditions.

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.
