Thant (Ten Quarter -2 Group)'s story

Ten Quarter -2 Group is located in Pyapon Township in the Delta Region of Myanmar. People call Pyapon “the place where people sell rice,” as cultivating paddy rice and trading rice are the main businesses for most inhabitants around the township. In addition, trading construction materials such as bricks and sand, operating fishing businesses, and raising livestock such as pigs and ducks are also income-generating activities in the area.

Five loan clients are included in the Ten Quarter -2 Group; Thant, Win, Than, Myint and Min.

The featured borrower of the group is Thant (the one in the middle). He is 54 years old and married with two children. Thant cooperates with his wife in running a Burmese local tea shop. It is the family's main business and it has also been operating for five years.

For Thant, this Kiva loan will be a great investment that he will use to buy sugar, snacks, cooking oil and other necessary goods at a discount for his tea shop. His business goal is to have a much larger business in the next five years. His tea shop is now well-known around Pyapon Township.
