Chenda is a new borrower with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She decided to take the first loan in order to cover the tuition fee for her son, who is pursing a bachelor degree, majoring in medical science. Additionally, she will spend some portion of her loan to buy school materials for her son. She hopes that this financial support will fulfill her son's dream of getting a job in the medical field.
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.

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.
