Lim's story

Lim is a resident in Roveang district of Preah Vihear province. She is a twenty-year-old, married woman. The primary income source for her family is from a farming business. In addition to that, Lim also works as a paid laborer, in order to earn extra money to support her family. The average daily income for the whole family is only 14,000 KHR per day.

This is the very first time that she is seeking a microloan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Lim is applying for loan money of 1,200,000 KHR. She plans to use the money to support her farming business. Moreover, she plans to use a portion of the money to plant potatoes in order to earn extra income. Lim strongly believes that the loan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, enables her to uplift her family lifestyle in a gradual pace.
