A loan of $2,500 helped to pay for her younger brother's tuition fees.


Rithy's story

Rithy is 34 years old and a married mother blessed with one son who is still in school. To struggle for a living, she plants cucumbers for resale as her main source of income; it is the business that she has had for 10 years. This is Rithy's fourth loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has repaid her past loans with success improving her living conditions. For this cycle, she is taking out an education loan to support her brother who wants to pursue a bachelor's degree majoring in Engineering. She will spend her entire loan to pay her younger brother's tuition fees. She hopes that her brother will get a good job after he graduates.
