A loan of $1,850 helped to pay school fees for her son.

Sophorn's story

Sophorn, a local villager from Kampong Cham province where she does her business, rice farming, is in her early 40s and a hardworking mother of three kids. Her husband also helps her to earn more income through working as a paid worker. Engaging in this current business for all of her life has enabled her to generate about USD4 per day.

With VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), Sophorn is not in her first cycle. Her past loan has enabled her to stabilize her living conditions and to keep her kids in school. Now, she wants to support one of her sons who wants to earn a bachelor degree, majoring in Finance and Banking in a local university in Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. She will spend the entire loan portion to pay school fees for her son. She hopes that he can get a good job after graduation.
