Kimyi's Group's story

Aged 37, Kimyi is a married mother of four children who all are still in school. She lives in a village of the Tbaung Khmum district where crop farming is a common way to earn a living. She is a farmer who has been farming rice on one hectare of farmland for 8 years. She supplements her income by planting cassava on a half hectare of farmland. Having earned a living as a farmer, she has been challenged by price fluctuations for her cassava crops.

Kimyi has been with Kiva's field partner, VisionFund, for two loan cycles, while the others are just with VisionFund this loan cycle. Kimyi was selected as the leader of the group. The past loans have helped Kimyi to afford to buy a plot of farmland. She now can earn up to KHR 12,000 per day from her current business. Having successfully paid back the loans, she is leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and seedlings for her farmland. She hopes to make more income from her business and keep her children in school.
