First Finance Plc
Better homes for households on low incomes
First Finance PLC is a microfinance institution (MFI) providing housing and home improvement loans to almost 800 Cambodian households on low or middle incomes (in 2014). Almost half of the clients are women. First Finance has three offices, in Phnom Penh, Battambang and Siem Reap.
Poverty is a huge problem in Cambodia. Most Cambodians rely on agriculture, but there is also a substantial production market for clothing and footwear for export.
First Finance is the only MFI in Cambodia that offers affordable housing loans to clients with limited financial resources. Oikocredit's financing benefits families with small businesses, clients living on low incomes, and small traders and service providers in its areas of operation.
First Finance has been an Oikocredit partner since 2011.Download this project as a PDF
