A loan of $1,000 helped a member to pay for harvesting fees.

Thim's Group's story

Thim is 31 years old, married, and has two children. One of them is in school, and the other is too young for school. Thim has struggled to deal with her living costs by growing rice with the support of her husband. She has been in this business for eight years and is able to earn up to 23,300 KHR per day. Thim has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles and has successfully repaid her loans. The loans have helped her a great deal by supporting her business and empowering her gradually to improve her life style. For this cycle, she is in a group with four members. Three borrowers, including Thim, are their third borrowing cycle, while the remaining member is a second-cycle client, with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Each of them is seeking the same loan amount of 1,000,000 KHR. As the group leader, Thim is going to spend her portion on harvesting fees for her crop. She hopes that this working capital will support her through the season, so that she can earn more income and keep her children in school.
