Nim's story

Originally from Kampong Cham province’s Ou Reang Ov district, Nim is 37 years old and married. She has three children, two of whom still rely on her, as one is helping with the household chores and a remaining one is in school. To deal with the daily cost of living, she grows paddy rice and cassava on 3 hectares each of farmland with the support from her husband. The current business has returned her about 38,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.

Nim joins VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) as a first-loan-cycle client. She will spend her requested loan in the amount of 4,000,000 KHR in order to buy potash and pay plowing fees for her rice farm, and to pay labor costs for her cassava farm. She hopes that she can gain a high profit to better her lifestyle.
