Sokhea is a resident of Samrong Torng District located in Kampong Speu province. She is a 56-year-old married woman. Sokhea has one child who is dependent on her. Her primary income is from farming. On average she earns 22,500 KHR per day which makes it impossible for her to put her child in school. This is the sixth loan cycle that Sokea is requesting from Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR. With the loan money that she receives she plans to buy fertilizers and seeds for her cash-crop. She strongly believes that the loan will enable her to improve her family's situation and provide her with enough support to put her child in school.

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.
