A loan of $775 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


Thou's Group's story

Thou is a resident living in Kampong Cham province’s Tbaung Khmum district in Cambodia. She is a 28-year-old married woman with one dependent son who is a student.

Thou supports her family by working as a rice farmer and paid worker, earning around 17,000 KHR per day and saving approximately 7,000 KHR after deducting her daily cost of living.

Thou, a second-time borrower, is leading a group of three members to take out a loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) in the amount of 3,000,000 KHR in total. The group representative, Thou comments that the previous loan she obtained and successfully paid back has enabled her to improve her family’s living conditions.

Thou will spend her requested loan portion in this loan, which is 1,000,000 KHR, on buying fertilizer to apply to her farmland and buying study materials such as books, pen, pencil, bag, ruler, etc., for her son.

After receiving her requested loan portion and wisely using it, Thou hopes that the rice-growing business will provide good quality crop yields and her family’s living standard will improve even more.
