Touch, 62, is married and lives with her family in a village of the Srey Snom district. She has five children. To make a living, she has been farming rice and planting cassava for 44 years and the current business earns her family about 37,000 KHR per day.
Touch has been with VisionFund for three cycles and successfully repaid the past loans. She is applying for a loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her current business.
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.
