Kim, age 44, is an experienced farmer from the village Anlong Thma of Baray district, Kampong Thom. Her family consists of her husband and her five children, all of whom are married.
Kim, with the help of her family members, is engaged in farming rice, cassavas, and other seasonal crops on farmland that is around two-hectares. Farming is the sole source of income for the family. Kim usually sells the agricultural products from her home because there are local traders who go through the village to collect the products to sell into the markets.
As the family's needs are increasing day by day, Kim needs to enlarge her areas for planting crops, so she will be able to cover their basic needs.
Kim would like to acquire a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to buy a piece of land.
As this is her first loan with Kiva, Kim and her family will be very thankful to the lenders for their goodwill in helping them collect the needed loan.
