Nhoeurm is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Her past loan enabled her to support her child to finish secondary school and move on to pursue a university degree. However, the tuition fee is quite a burden for her family. To tackle this issue, she applied for an education loan to pay the tuition fee of her son, who is studying at a local school specializing in Finance and Banking. Moreover, with a small portion of her loan, she will buy school materials for her son.
She hopes this loan will support her son’s education costs on time so that her child can pay more attention to his studies.
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 CambodiaVisionFund 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.
