A loan of $850 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Thea's Group's story

A citizen from a rural area located in the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Thea is 29 years old. She is a married woman with three dependent children, two daughters and one son; all of her children are still in school.

She and her husband have been involved in rice farming on 1.5 hectares of farmland and sugar palm making for several years. Together, they can earn about 10,000 KHR and manage to save about 4,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Thea has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for one cycle and she completely paid back the loan; while her group members have been with VisionFund for two cycles. The first loan has helped her to support her business. Now she is leading her group of three female members to apply for a new loan.

As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to pay a harvesting fee. She hopes to earn a better income, so as to improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school.
