A loan of $600 helped a member to buy pig feed and fishing materials.


Kimly's Group's story

A villager residing in a rural area of Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia, Kimly is a 32-year-old married woman with two children. Both of her children (one daughter and one son) are under her care. To make a living, she has businesses selling Khmer noodles and raising pigs. Her husband also assists in the pig-raising business and, to supplement the family's income, works as a fisherman. Kimly has nine years of experience in her current businesses, earning approximately 14,000KHR per day and managing to save around 8,000KHR for future needs. This will be Kimly’s second time requesting a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The first loan that she received enabled her to buy more pigs to raise and secure food for her family. She has faced challenges such as lacking working capital and unhealthy pigs. Now she is leading her fellow group members, Pov and Lav, to take out a loan with VisionFund. With her requested loan portion, Kimly will buy pig feed and fishing materials, such as fish traps and cast nets. After receiving and using her loan portion, she believes that she will be able to boost her income and use a portion of the income to show the love that she has for her children by educating them; sending them to good school.
