Thea's Group's story

At 29 years old, Thea is a citizen living in Battambang province's Moung Russey district, Cambodia. She is married and blessed with two dependent kids, one of whom is a student while the other one is too young for schooling. Thea and her husband offer decent conditions for the family by working as rice farmers. To add more income to the family, Thea's husband also works as a motor-taxi driver. Together, they generate income for the family around 25,000 KHR per day. Thea has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for four loan cycles already, with which she succeeded in improving the family's lifestyle. She is now leading a group member who has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles to seek loans in the amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. The group leader, Thea, will utilize her loan portion to pay wages to farm laborers. Thea expects to harvest rice on time via the help of this loan.
