Kimlean's story

Kimlean, 34 years old, is a citizen residing in a rural area of Dambae district, in Cambodia’s Kampong Cham province. She is married and a mother of four children, all of whom are dependent on her. To make a living, Kimlean plants cassava, while her husband works for others as a paid laborer to add more income to the family. Kimlean and her husband are able to generate income for their family of around 20,000KHR daily.

Kimlean has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for two loan cycles already. With her previous loans she succeeded in purchasing pesticide and paying the cost of labor. Kimlean is now seeking a new loan with VisionFund in the amount of 2,000,000KHR, to pay for plowing land and to pay wages to farm laborers. This hard-working mother (Kimlean) hopes to send her children to good schools in the future, and to be able to guarantee food security for her beloved family.
