A loan of $500 helped to buy an air pump for her family’s business.


Kimyan's story

A 31-year-old mother of three, Kimyan resides in a rural village of the Battambang province’s Bovel district in Cambodia. To support her family, she has been selling retail gasoline in her village for several years, while her husband is a tire patcher. Together, they can earn about KHR55,000 per day from the current business and can save about KHR40,000 each day for future needs.

This is the first loan for Kimyan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. With the lack of working capital to better support her family’s business, she is applying for a loan of KHR2,000,000 and she will use this loan to buy an air pump for the business. She hopes to expand her family’s business and gain more income to build on some savings to increase her family’s business.
