A loan of $1,200 helped to support her studying.

Phearum's story

Originally from Banteay Meanchey province of Cambodia, Phearum is 24 years old and is living with her parents. She supports the family business, growing cassava. For extra profit, her family also provides a paid-plowing service in the local area. Phearum has five siblings, but her parents can afford to send only three children to school since their household income is limited.

Phearum has never been with VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner) before. She keens to pursue a four-year, bachelor degree program, majoring in Finance and Banking. Therefore, she has decided to take an education loan from VisionFund Cambodia, as a first time borrower.

She hopes that this loan will provide sufficient capital to support her studying, so she can pay more attention to her study and obtain a good job after graduation, in order to relieve the family’s financial burden.
