Tiv's Group's story

Tiv is residing in a remote village, located in Presh Vihea province. She is a 42-year-old mother, who has four children, three of whom are dependent on her and currently are going to school.

Tiv struggles to earn a living through rice farming and bean farming. She also earns additional income by raising pigs for sale and selling snacks to the villagers. Unfortunately, she is able to earn only KHR 22,200 per day, which is barely enough to feed her children.

This is the fourth cycle for Tiv as a borrower of VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner). She has completed the payment of previous loans and the loans have helped her to gradually improve the living conditions of her family. Now, she leads a group of five members to request a loan of KHR 5,000,000, which contributes the same share of KHR 1,000,000 to each member.

Tiv plans to use her portion of the loan to install a solar system that will be very beneficial for her family since they are living in a remote area, where electric lines are inaccessible. She hopes that the loan will help her to support her children to finish their studies.
