A loan of $500 helped to purchase more tools for collecting burnable oil.

Chim's story

Mrs. Chim N. is an older mother blessed with five children, of whom one is now married and the remaining four are single. To help the family, three of her children are employed at different occupations.

To earn a daily income, Chim N. raises a few pigs and rice crops on her own land next to her house. Additionally, she goes to the forest with her husband to collect burnable oil from trees and turn it into glue to sell (it is used in furniture making).

This is the second loan that Chim N. has requested from Kiva. She will be using this loan to purchase more tools used to collect the burnable oil. With any remaining money from the loan, she will repair her old house that is often cracking.
