Kim Sreymach, 26, is married and lives with a school-aged child and her husband in Phnom Penh City, Cambodia. She is engaged in the agriculture sector growing morning glory plants, earning a gross income of US $14 per day. Her husband is employed as a construction worker, earning an income of US $4 per day to help cover the family expenses. Kim and her family members are seeking to improve their standard of living and generate a better income. Therefore, Kim is asking for a loan of US $1200 to purchase morning glory seeds to expand her farming. She hopes that this loan to invest in her farming will help her family to generate more income and to save more money for the future of the child. This is her first loan from CREDIT MFI, Kiva’s partner.
