Kin's Group's story

Kin, 39, is from a rural village located in the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province. She is married with three children. She and her husband earn a living through farming rice and planting cassava on almost 6 hectares of farmland. She and her husband have been in this business for 20 years. To better feed her family, she and her husband also farm rice, which they have been doing this year. The current business earns her family about 30,000KHR per day.

This is Khim’s group micro-loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, and she is a fourth-time borrower with VisionFund. As the leader, she is leading her group of two to apply for a loan and she will use her portion to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland, and she will use a portion of it to spend for land plowing. With this loan, she hopes to increase her family’s income so as to improve her standard of living.
