A loan of $1,000 helped to buy an additional plot of land to expand her paddy rice growing business.


Lim's story

Lim is a 25-year-old divorced mother of one son residing in the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province. To raise her son alone, she needs to work on her rice farm, which is her own business, as well as at the rubber plantation, where she is a paid worker, to generate income. Additionally, she plants rubber tree seedlings for extra income.

She has been with her farming business for 3 years. For this cycle, she is a second-time borrower with Kiva partner VisionFund. After the first loan that she has paid back, she feels confident that she can maintain a standard of living for her son.

Now, her new requesting amount is 4,000,000 Cambodia Riels (KHR). She will use this loan to buy an additional plot of land to expand her paddy rice growing business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to grow her rice timely and sell for a high price so that she can increase her income for her son's sake.
