A loan of $1,500 helped to pay her daughter’s university fees .

Sothea's story

Residing in Takeo province, Sothea is 46 years old and married. She has three children, all of whom still depend on her and who are still in school. Sothea has struggled to make a living through rice farming and selling groceries. She has been engaged in this business for 20 years.

Sothea has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for two cycles with successful repayments each time. The previous loan has helped her to protect her family's health and provide decent food for her children. Now she is applying a loan as a third-time borrower with VisionFund to pay for her daughter’s university fees for four years. She hopes that the loan will enable her to keep her daughter in university to pursue her degree so she can find a good job after graduation.
