Heang's story

Residing in the Ratanak Mondul district of Battambang province, Heang is 56 years old and married. She has four children, two of whom still count on her and are still in school. She has struggled to make a living through growing cassava and corn for five years and she is able to earn up to 26 U.S. dollars per day. However, she is able to save only six USD dollar per day after deducting all related expenses. Heang has been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, for five cycles. Now, she is applying as a sixth-time borrower with VisionFund asking for an education loan to pay for the school fees of her daughter for the four years. She hopes that the loan will enable her to keep her daughter in university to pursue the degree so as to find a good job after graduation and also help her to relieve her financial burden and her worry in the future in supporting her children’s education.
