A loan of $600 helped to cover the entire tuition fees for her son to study banking at a local institute.


Phally's story

Residing in the Santok district of the Kampong Thom province, Phally is 65 years old and married with two children, one of whom is still in school. She and her husband earn a living by working as teachers. Having been engaged in this job for 27 years, they are able to earn about $18 per day and they manage to save about $5 each day after daily expenses.

Phally has never been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, before. Now, she is applying as a first-time borrower with VisionFund to cover the entire tuition fees for her son to study banking at a local institute. She hopes to keep her son studying until he graduates in order for him to get a good job so he can support the family and help them improve their living conditions.
