A loan of $1,000 helped to buy an additional plot of land for growing cassava; cassava plants; and fertilizer for her farmland.

Thon's story

Thon is a widow with eight children, six of whom depend on her. Some of her children are helping the family's business, while some are working for others for a fee.

Thon has a two hectare area of farmland for growing rice and planting cassava. It has been 26 years that she has been involved in this business and she is able to earn about 73,000 Cambodia Riels (KHR) per day.

This is the third loan for Thon with KIVA partner VisionFund. The past two loans that she successfully repaid back enabled her to support her family with daily expenses better than before. Now she, in a confident manner, is seeking a new loan of 4,000,000 KHR to lease an additional plot of land to grow cassava as well as buying cassava plants. Moreover, she will also use some portion of her loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to grow her cash crop healthfully so that she receives more crop yield to sell.
