A loan of $500 helped to pay for her son’s tuition.


Heang's story

A rural farmer from Takeo province, Heang is the breadwinner in her family consisting of nine children. For her, animal husbandry (raising chickens and ducks) and rice farming are the primary sources of her family's income. This business has returned her up to USD 8 per day to support her living. Heang is new to VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). Now, she has to care for only one son who is studying at a local university specializing in English literature. To cover her son's tuition fee, she decided to take her first loan from VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She hopes that her son can focus on his study and get a good job after graduation.
