A loan of $600 helped to pay for her son's university fees.

Chorn's story

Residing in the Moung Russey District of Battambang Province, Chorn is 61 years old and married. Chorn has struggled to make a living through selling snacks, while her husband is a teacher. Chorn has been engaged in her business for ten years and is able to earn up to KHR (Cambodian Riel) 30,000 per day. However, she is able to save only KHR 16,000 per day after deducting all related expenses.

Chorn has never been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, before. Now, she is applying as a first-time borrower for a loan to pay for her son's university fees. She hopes that the loan will enable her to keep her son in university to pursue his degree so he can find a good job after graduation.
