A loan of $1,600 helped to pay her son's university tuition fees.

Chanthou's story

Chanthou is a citizen from a rural area located in Takeo Province’s Samrong District where crop farming and silk weaving are common businesses to make a living. She is married and is the 35-year-old mother of two children. One of her children is at school while the other one is too young for schooling. To feed her household, she earns a living through silk weaving while her husband does rice cropping. She is able to earn up to US$12 per day from this business in which she has been working for 17 years and she can manage to save only US$3 each day for future needs.

Chanthou, who has never been with VisionFund before, is seeking her first loan of US$1,600. She is going to use this loan for her children's education, by paying the tuition fees for the four years of her son’s bachelor degree majoring in finance and banking. This loan will enable her to send her son to university and to keep him there. Chanthou hopes that her children will have a good and bright future from these academic studies and earn a better living in the future.
