Thol's story

Age 58 and a villager from Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Thol is a mother of five children. She endures her family’s difficulty by rice farming. This is the business that she has engaged in for ages. Her husband works for others for a fee for additional income, and he also helps her on her farmland.

Thol is not a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has paid back her past loan wisely and it enabled her to support her living at a gradual pace. Now, she is in need of working capital to support her paddy rice farming business. Therefore, she seeks a new loan of 2,500,000 KHR to buy rice seed and fertilizer, and to pay a plowing fee and a leasing fee for her farmland. She hopes to gain a good yield from her crop and make good profit for her family.
