Vuthy is a villager from Kandal Stoeng district, in Kandal province. He is a 33-year-old, married father of two schoolchildren. He makes a living by selling sweets in a school, and his wife is working at a factory to supplement their family's income. She has six years' experience in her work.

Vuthy is a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). With this loan, he is seeking 4,000,000 KHR. He will use part of this amount to buy more sweets for resale, and another part to build a decent latrine for his family. He hopes that he can make more income from his business and own a proper latrine, to promote good hygiene for his family.

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.
