A villager from the Pursat province’s Sampov Meas district, Som is 24 years old and married. She has one dependent son, who is still small. The main source of her family’s income is from rice farming. To better support her family, Som also sells grocery items to earn additional income. Having been in this business for four years, she is able to earn a daily income of US $7 to support her family, and she can save about US $5 per day for their future needs.

This is the first loan for Som with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is applying for a loan to buy a motor for commuting for her family. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a decent motor for her family's use.

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.
