Living in a rural village located in the Pursat province’s Kro Kor district, Yen is 45 and married with seven children, two of whom are still in dependent on her and still in school. For the last 20 years, she has been farming rice as a primary business for her family while her husband catches fish to better support her family. The current business earns her about 18,000 KHR per day to make a living and she can save about 8,000 KHR each day for their future needs.
Yen is taking her fifth microloan with VisionFund. She completely paid back the past loans, which have helped her to better support her family’s business. Now she is seeking another loan of 2,500,000 KHR to build a decent house for her family. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a proper house for her family to live in.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
