Then's Group's story

Then is 49 years old and married. She has five children, four of whom are students in the local public school while the remaining one is helping with the family business. One hectare area of cassava planting and another hectare and half of rice farming are the main source of the family's income. The current business returns her about 20,800 KHR per day.

This is not the first loan for Then with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has repaid back her past loan with success and it has helped her to relieve her family’s burden and improve her livelihood at a good pace. Now, she formed a group composed of four members to apply for a new loan. The total amount of her group loan is 4,400,000 KHR. As a group leader whose loan portion is 1,400,000 KHR, Then will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and rice seeds. She hopes to gain high yields from both cash-crops and sell at a high price to make more income.
