Khim's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase seeds and fertilizers and to pay for the process of growing rice and potatoes.
Khim is 65 years old. Her husband is a local farmer, and she has given birth to seven children. Most of them have independent lives and their own families. Khim is in the business of cultivating rice and potatoes for sale. She can harvest her rice crops between four and five months after planting, and for potatoes, between six and seven months. Khim's husband and children help manage this business to ensure good growth and high production. At present, she is borrowing a loan from HKL and Kiva to add to her existing capital to purchase seeds and fertilizers and to pay for the whole process of growing rice and potatoes in this coming rainy season. She plans that in the near future, a portion of the revenue will be reinvested into the business for expansion.
