Kanharath, aged 20, comes from a rural village in the Tram Kak district, Takeo province. Recently, she has begun temporarily living with her aunt in Phnom Penh because she is attending Cambodian Mekong University, majoring in marketing. This is her second academic year at university and it’s time for her to pay her tuition fees again in order to start her course.

Due to insufficient money, Kanharath would like to borrow a loan amounting to 700 USD to pay for her university tuition fees. As her education is being subsidized by her parents, she aims to have a part-time job to help her parents share the costs of living and pay for her university fees. Kanharath is very happy and grateful for the loans funded via programs like Kiva that enable poor students to pursue a higher education, and contribute to the future development of Cambodia.
