A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland.

Thy's Group's story

Thy is aged 33 years and married. She has two children, both of whom are under her responsibility as they are still in school. Her family lives in a rural area of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. To support the family, she has been planting cassava for ten years and supplementing the family’s income by selling grocery items. From the current business, she is able to earn almost 27,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day for future needs.

Thy has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for two cycles and successfully repaid the loans while the other member has just joined VisionFund this cycle. She has wisely used to past loans to support her children’s education. Now she is leading her group of two to apply for a loan.

Thy will use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland and use a portion of it to pay for labourers. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow cassava more productively and sell it for a good price so as to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
