Hen is in her second loan cycle as a client with VisonFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan, which she has fully paid back, has supported her business and stabilized her living conditions quickly.
Besides her business, she wants to focus on her kids' future, too. Hence, she applied for an education loan to cover the tuition fees for her daughter, who wants to pursue a bachelor degree majoring in Civil Engineering. She hopes that her daughter can reach her dream and 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 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.
