A loan of $1,500 helped to buy piglets for raising.

Thorn's story

Thorn is 61 years old and she has six children. Her family lives in a rural area located in the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. Thorn has been a rice farmer for ten years on two hectares of farmland and this is the main source of her family’s income. She can earn approximately KHR 25,000 per day and manages to save about KHR 10,000 each day.

Thorn has been with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, for three loan cycles and fully repaid her past loans, which enabled her to buy a motor for commuting with her family. Now she is applying for another loan of US $1,500. Thorn will use it to buy piglets for raising in order to earn additional income for her family. She hopes this loan will enable her to make more income so as to improve her standard of living.
