Ratanak's story

Ratanak is a single young man residing in Battambang Province's Ek Phnom district in Cambodia. He lives in a family consisting of seven members including him and his mother who sell vegetables and meats for family income, as the breadwinners in the family. Now, he has his own job at a local NGO (Non-profit Organization) and receives a decent income to support the family. Ratanak wants to pursue his master's degree specializing in Tourism at a local university. Therefore, he applied for his first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) in order to pay his tuition fee. He hopes that this loan will relieve his financial burden so that he can pay more attention to his studies and get a good job to support his family.
