A loan of $1,800 helped to pay for her daughter's tuition fees.


Lao's story

A local citizen from Takeo Province, Lao is 51 years old, married, and blessed with six children. For her family, rice-cropping and pig-raising are the main sources of the family’s income. Her husband also helps to earn income through playing traditional music during wedding ceremonies and owning a small rice mill machine. She has been engaged in her current business for 31 years. This is Lao's fourth loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She has repaid her past loans wisely in order to upgrade her living and her business. For this cycle, she is taking out the loan to pay for the university tuition of her daughter, who is a freshman majoring in finance and banking. She hopes that her daughter does not need to worry about financial issues related to her studies so she can pay attention to pursuing her academic degree and getting a good job after graduation.
