A 45-year-old mother of seven children from Bovel district of Battambang province, Nha is a corn grower on a three-hectare area. To supplement the family income, her husband is a house builder.
She has been involved in the current business for three years, earning about 34,000 KHR per day. This is the first time for Nha with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She will use the loan to plow her farmland and to buy corn seed and potash for her farmland.
She highly hopes that she can grow her corn timely and fruitfully, so that she can sustain her lifestyle and provide sufficient food for her children.
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.
