A loan of $625 helped to cover her daughter’s university tuition.

Sokhoern's story

Sokhoern is a 42-year-old, rural villager from Kandal province's Ponhea Leur district. She has four dependent children, all of whom are still in school. Sokhoern has earned a living through farming rice on 3-hectares of farmland. Having engaged in this business for 20 years, Sokhoern is able to save up to five US dollars per day from her current business, after deducting the expenses.

This is the second-cycle loan for Sokhoern with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. The past loan, which she successfully paid back, has helped her to sustain her living conditions as well as her business in a gradual manner. This cycle she is applying for an educational loan to cover the entire tuition for her daughter, a 21-year-old freshman in a local university who is specializing to be a midwife. She hopes that this loan will enable her daughter to obtain a higher education and end up with a good job after graduation in order to support the family.
