Kimhour, one of the breadwinners in her family consisting of four schoolchildren, is 42 years old and a resident of Kampong Cham province. To make a living, she sells Khmer noodles and manages a vegetable garden. This is the business that she has been in for 25 years. Kimhour, who has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for two cycles including this loan, has repaid her past loan with success, which enables her to provide her kids with sufficient food and decent clothes. Moreover, she can keep her kids in school. For this cycle, she is applying for a new loan in order to cover the school fees for her son who wants to hold a bachelor degree in Information Technology. She hopes that she can support her son's need on time so he can fulfill his dream.

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.
