This is the second loan cycle of Nim, which will give her an opportunity to enhance her business as well as her living status. Nim is aged 71 and a local farmer, who has been managing rice farming in a fertile area of Kampong Cham province. She has 34 years of experience in this field and is able to make a decent income to provide for her family’s sustenance. She is married and has five children, all of whom are married and engaged in the farming business, which is a traditional business passed on for generations.
At the moment, Nim would like to acquire a loan in the sum of 600 US dollars to buy a used motorcycle to fulfill the need of her child. Though her children are married and some are living separately, Nim still pays much attention to them all and always wants to see them living in a good lifestyle. She hopes her loan will be approved with the generosity of Kiva lenders.
