A loan of $1,225 helped to pay for her son’s university tuition.


Nen's story

A widowed mother of two children who lives in the Samrong District of Takeo Province, Nen does rice planting and silk weaving to support her entire family as a single mother. With 35 years' experience in these businesses, she is able to earn up to 6 USD per day and to keep 1.5 USD each day as savings. The main expenses for her family are daily food consumption and her children’s schooling.

Nen has joined VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, this cycle as a first-time borrower. She is now applying for 1,222 USD to pay for her son’s university tuition. She hopes this loan will enable her to keep her son in tertiary education until graduation and also that it will help to relieve her family's financial burden so she can sustain and grow her business.
