A loan of $1,000 helped to build a decent house.

Thatt's story

Thatt is aged 36 and lives in a rural area of the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, Cambodia. She is a widowed mother of four children, three of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She has been struggling to feed her children by farming rice on 2.5 hectares and she has been in this business for ten years. Thatt is able to earn about KHR10,000 per day.

This is the second microloan for Thatt with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She completely paid back the past loan, which has helped her to relieve her family’s burden. Now she is applying for a loan of US$1,000. She wants to use this loan to build a decent house. Thatt hopes this loan will enable her to have proper house for living in.
