A loan of $625 helped to purchase timbers and construction supplies to repair and expand her house.


Lim's story

Lim, 32, is a married woman who lives with her husband and two school-age children in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. She cultivates primarily rice on her farmland to earn her livelihood. In addition, she devotes time to raising pigs at home for additional income.

Lim is happy because she has a supportive husband who helps her manage most of the maintenance of the rice field. Together, they agreed to continue sending their children to school so that they can earn degrees and become professionals someday. Lim believes that education is one of the most important tools to alleviate poverty.

As of now, Lim is taking out a loan from HKL, a longstanding Kiva partner, to purchase timbers and construction supplies to repair and expand her house. She hopes to receive the loan from lenders to improve her family’s living condition. In the coming years, Lim plans to save money to purchase an extra plot of farmland to increase her rice output.
