A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to pay a plowing fee.

Thet's Group's story

Thet is 47 years old and married with four children, some of whom are still in school while some are helping in the family’s business. Thet is a peasant from Battambang province where she and her family live in a residential area. She manages five hectares for growing rice, and her husband also works as a paid worker during his spare time after helping her on the farmland. She has been with this business for 30 years.

Thet has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past three loan cycles. The past loans have stabilized her living status to a proper condition. She has managed to pay back her past loans with success. For this cycle, she is in a group of two to apply for a new loan. She is seeking 1,400,000 KHR and her joint member is applying for 600,000 KHR.

As the group leader, Thet will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay a plowing fee. She hopes to gain a high yield and make more profit so she can buy a mini-tractor to support her farmland and reduce the plowing fees which she used to pay to others.
