Chanthea, a 26-year-old married mother of a little son, lives in the Kror Kor district of Pursat Province where, to cover the daily cost of living, she grows rice and raises two pigs. To supplement the family’s income, her husband ships firewood for resale. With eight years in her business, Chanthea is able to earn up to 14,600 KHR.

Having repaid her past loans, Chanthea is requesting her third one from Kiva partner VisionFund. For this cycle, she is seeking 3,000,000 KHR in order to buy a buffalo to support her farmland. She hopes that this purchase will help her eliminate her plowing fees.

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.
