Heab is 29 years old and blessed with one kid. She lives in the Ponhea Krek district, Kampong Cham province, where she does her agribusiness of cassava farming and growing rubber tree seedlings. This is the business that she has had for several years.
This is the second microloan for Heab with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid back her past loan wisely to upgrade her lifestyle better than before. Now, she is seeking 2,500,000 KHR [Cambodian riels] in order to buy fertilizer for her crop. She hopes that she can make more income, better than before.
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.
