Kolab is a citizen from a rural area located in Kandal province’s Kean Svay district, where crop farming is the common business to make a living. She is married and a 59-year-old mother of eight children. To feed her household, she earns a living through farming rice. Having been in this business for 30 years, she is able to earn up to $6 USD per day from the business.

Kolab has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle. The past loan, which she completely paid back, enabled her to better support her business. Now, she is asking for another loan VisionFund to pay for the tuition fee for four years of her son’s bachelor's degree majoring in management. This loan will enable her to send and keep her son in university. She hopes that her children will have good and bright futures from his academic studies, and make a better living in the future.

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.

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.
