A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizer, potash, and rice seed.

Thorn's Group's story

A 54-year-old mother of seven kids, Thon is also a local villager inhabiting the Kampong Cham Province in Cambodia. She is married and currently three of her children are in school in the local area. On one hectare each, she grows rice and plants cassava as their primary source of income. She is able to earn up to 18,800 KHR. She has been farming for 20 years. This is the third loan for Thon with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The past loans, which she has repaid, have provided her a decent income. Now, as a group of two, is applying for a new loan. She is requesting a loan of 1,400,000 KHR while her joint member is requesting 1,000,000 KHR. Thon, as a group leader, will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, potash, and rice seed. She does believe that this purchase will help her to grow her cash-crop fruitfully and increase her income to support her living and her children’s education.
