Savoerng's story

Savoerng is 55 years old and widowed, with three children. She resides in the Battambang district of Battambang Province.

Savoerng​ is a solider in the local area. Savoerng has been engaged in her job for 20 years and is able to earn up to KHR 27,000 per day. However, she is able to save only KHR 10,000 per day after deducting all related expenses.

Savoerng has not been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, before. Now, she is applying as a first-time borrower with VisionFund 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.
