A loan of $475 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Thon's Group's story

Thon, a resident from the Moung Russey district in the province of Battambang, is a 41 year-old woman who is blessed with four children. Three of her children are still in school.

For her family’s sake, Thon grows rice on three hectares of land as a source of their income. Her husband provides support also. After 10 years of being involved in her current business, she is able to earn up to 21,700 KHR per day.

This is the third loan for Thon with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan, which she has fully paid back, gradually enabled her to support her business and earn a living. Now, she is the leader of a group of three to apply for a new loan.

The total amount of her group loan is 1,800,000 KHR of which 200,000 KHR is her loan portion. Thon will use her loan to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to boost her crop output so that she can make more money to sustain her lifestyle.
