VisionFund Vietnam Client Survey

MFU Vietnam Client Survey Cover

World Vision is a leading child-focused organization, dedicated to serving the most vulnerable children and communities and helping them over-come poverty. Each year in Vietnam, about 200,000 vulnerable children are positively impacted through World Vision’s integrated intervention.

In 2006, World Vision established Micro-Finance Unit (MFU) VisionFund in Vietnam to boost the livelihood development process of the poor, the near-poor, and households with low income* through increased access to financial services, with a special focus on women empowerment and child well-being.

In December 2022, MFU Vietnam completed its first client impact survey. Here's what their clients had to say:

  • 99% say their quality of life improved since taking a loan from the MFU
  • 80% say their feelings of financial control 'very much improved'
  • 67% say their income 'very much improved' because of the MFU loan

"My previous loan cycles were for raising pigs and chickens. Thanks to those husbandry models, I could save around USD 450 per year. I used my savings and the current loan for upgrading my house, and my children are very happy about it,” shares a client.
