Man is a 46-year-old mother of four children, living in a rural village of the Moung Russey district, Cambodia.
To make a living, Man and her husband have been farming rice and her husband supplements the family’s income by working. The current business earns her about KHR 35,000 per day to meet the family’s needs.
This is Man's second micro-loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia. She completely paid back the past loan.
Man is now applying for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income, so as to make a better living.
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.
