A loan of $500 helped a member to buy pigs for raising for extra income.

Im's Group's story

Im, age 44 and a widow, is a rice grower on a one and a half hectare area. This is her sole source of income. She has been in this business for three years in order to support her daily cost of living, and it has returned her 7,700 KHR per day.

Im has been a client for four cycles with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and she forms a group of two with a three-time borrower. The past loans that she repaid with success have upgraded her living conditions. Now she is seeking to borrow 1,400,000 KHR, and her joint member is applying for 500,000 KHR. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy pigs for raising for extra income. She hopes this new business will increase her profit to further improve her living.
