Originally from Dambae district of Kampong Cham Province, Thy is 31 years old and one of the breadwinners in the family which consists of two sons who are under 18 years old. She helps her family to survive through a pig-raising business in which she has been engaged for five years. To supplement the family's income, her husband also helps to earn additional income via charging batteries at home.

This is the fourth-cycle loan for Thy with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has completely paid back the previous loan and it was successful in ensuring her current business is in good shape. This has empowered her and she now feels she can sustain her living conditions in a proper manner.

Now, she is seeking for a new loan of 2,500,000 KHR. She is going to spend this loan on buying ten more pigs to raise and pig feed. She hopes she can enlarge this business to a larger scale, and fatten her pigs so she can sell them at a good price.
