A loan of $400 helped to pay for the course of study of her son.


Van's story

Mrs. Van is a 65-year-old single mother who has been residing in Kompong Cham province. She is engaged in rice husbandry on their inherited farmland. She normally earns approximately $1.50 per day and it is barely enough to raise her family with nine children. Since the family has experienced difficulties, Mrs. Van has to try to work harder both physically and mentally.

At the present, one of her sons decided to join a Korean foundation class in order to pass a test to work as a laborer in Korea. He will need some capital to pay for this course of study. Therefore, Mrs. Van wants to take out a loan from Kiva, through HKL, to pay for the course of study for her son. Mrs. Van hopes that her son will pass the exam and will be able to generate a good income to help the family. She is very grateful to all Kiva lenders.
