Rina, 29, lives in a village of Battambang province’s Sangke district, Cambodia. She has earned a living by growing rice and beans for five years. The current business earns about 68,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s need.
Rina has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for three loan cycles and has successfully repaid the loans. She requests a loan to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her current business and make a living better.
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.
