A loan of $650 helped to cover the entire tuition fee.


Sophal's story

Sophal, a rural villager from Kampong Thom province's Stoeung Sen district, is 21 years old. To support the family, he works as a security guard in a local area. He can earn approximately US$5 per day to better support his family and can manage to save about US$2 each day after daily expenses.

This is the first microloan for Sophal with VisionFund. He is applying for an education loan to cover the entire tuition fee at a local university specializing in finance and banking. He highly hopes that this loan will enable him to obtain a higher education background and that he will end up with a good job after graduation in order to support the family.
