Kunthea, a rural villager from Battambang province's Battamabng district, is 43 years old and she has five children. Four of whom are still in school. Kunthea has been selling Khmer Noodles and she has been engaged in this business for 10 years.

This is the fourteenth-cycle loan for Kunthea with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. The past business loans, which she successfully repaid, has helped her to sustain her living condition as well as her business in a gradual manner. This cycle, she is applying for an education loan to cover the entire tuition fee for four years for her daughter, an 18-year-old freshman in a local university specializing in Banking and Finance. She highly hopes that this loan will enable her to send her daughter to university and also helps her daughter to obtain a higher education background and end up with a good job after graduation in order to support 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
