Tharong's Group's story

Tharong is 29 years old and a mother one daughter who is still in school. She is a resident from Prey Chhor district of Kompong Cham province. To feed her family, she is a rice farmer and works as a paid worker to supplement her income. She has been involved in this business for 10 years, earning about 40,000 KHR per day. This is not the first loan for Tharong with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She repaid her past loan completely. It helped her to improve her living standard especially to buy household appliances and to keep her children in school. Now, she has formed a group of two to get a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed and to pay for a labor fee, a reaping fee, and a land leasing fee. She hopes that she can increase her yield.
