Sinat lives in a rural village of Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She is 31 years old and married with one daughter, who is in school. To support her family, she has been working as a rice farmer for eight years, while her husband works as a paid taxi driver. The current business earns her about 18,000KHR per day to make a living and she saves 8,000KHR each day after expenses.

Sinat joined with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, this cycle. She is applying for a loan of US$700 to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She will also use a portion of it to buy a proper car for her husband’s taxi business. She hopes to earn more income from the current business so as to better 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.
