A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland.


Rim's Group's story

Rim is age 44 and married. She lives in a rural area located in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has six children. Three of her children depend on her and are in school. Rim and her husband have been involved in rice farming and sesame planting to earn a living for 23 years. The current business earns them about 22,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day to meet the family’s needs, and she can manage to save about 12,000 KHR per day. The main challenge for her business the lack of working capital to buy fertilizer for applying to her paddy-field.

This is the third loan for Rim with Kiva partner VisionFund. The past loan has helped her with a better living. She is leading her group of four to request another loan. Rim, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to make more income from her current business so as to achieve a standard lifestyle and keep her children in school.
