Pheap is 42-years-old and blessed with four children. She lives in Battambang province. She tackles her family’s hardships by rice farming whereas her husband earns additional income from his job at a construction site. This is not the first loan for Pheap with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner).

She has repaid her past loans completely and they have enabled her to maintain a stable standard of living better than before. Now, she is seeking a new loan in order to cover school fees and to buy study materials for her son who wants to earn a bachelor degree majoring in Information Technology. She hopes that this financial support will enable her son to pay more attention to his studies in order to get a good academic performance so that he can get a good job after graduation.

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.
