Borath is 33 years old and married. She is a mother of three children. To make a living, Borath has been selling vegetables, fruits and rice for four years. The current business earns her about 42,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs, and she can save about 30,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.
Borath is the first cycle client with VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of 2,800,000 KHR to buy more vegetables, fruits and rice to resell. She hopes this loan will help her to increase more income to better off her family’s living condition.
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.
