A loan of $300 helped a member to buy more recycled items for resale.


Thea's Group's story

Thea is 41 and a villager from the Sangke district of Battambang province. By working for others she struggles to make a decent income to support her family. Her husband is a vendor who buys and sells recycled items.


Thea has formed a group of two to apply for a new joint loan, as she would like to buy more recycled items for her husband to sell. This will be Thea’s seventh loan cycle with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The past loans have enabled her to improve her family’s life, and she has completely repaid them. She is now requesting 600,000 KHR while her joint member is applying for 500,000 KHR. She hopes this loan will help her husband’s business stabilize and grow.

In this group: Thea, Veng
