Tham's story

Tham is a 60-year-old mother of 10 children living in Battambang Province, Cambodia. She is a local rice farmer on four hectares of farmland. She has support from her husband who sometimes works for others for a fee to make additional income. Tham has been in this business for 30 years. Tham has never received a loan from VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She is seeking her first loan. Tham will use her loan to buy gasoline for water pumping, fertilizer, and insecticide to support her rice field. She hopes to grow her rice seasonably so that she can multiply her crop production and gain more income for her family’s sake.
