Thida's story

Aged 60 years old, Thida is a single woman living in a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She has been in rice farming for 20 years to make a living as the primary source of income. She supplements her income by selling grocery items such as sugar, salt, eggs, etc.

Thida received her first loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund one loan cycle ago. The past loan has helped her to expand her current business and improve her livelihood. Now, she is requesting a loan of $500. Thida is going to use this loan to buy fertilizer and to pay the plowing fee for her paddy field. She will also use a portion of it to buy more grocery items for selling. She hopes to earn more income from the current business so as to improve her family’s lifestyle.
