Residing in the Mok Kampul district of Kandal province, Kimly is 44 years old. She earns a living through selling rice and coffee in the village. Having been in this business for nine years, Kimly is able to earn about 15,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 8,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Kimly has been with VisionFund for three cycles and successfully repaid the loans that have enabled her to improve her standard of living. Now, she is applying for another loan with VisionFund to cover the entire tuition fees for her son to study English Literature in the local university. She hopes this loan will enable her to keep her son in school until graduation in order to get a good job to support and improve the family.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of VisionFund Cambodia’s higher education program, designed to provide financing to students in poor households who otherwise lack the financial support to continue their studies. Very few students have the financial resources necessary to go to college. VisionFund Cambodia has designed a lower-interest rate loan product for students, given the financial benefits associated with financing this loan upfront on Kiva. It is disbursed to the borrower in annual installments.

About VisionFund Cambodia

VisionFund Cambodia is a Christian organization and microfinance institution that provides small loans and other financial services to improve the lives of children, empower poor women and their families, and grow successful businesses. The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.

Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.
