A loan of $1,650 helped to pay for her son's tuition fees at the local university.

Lay's story

Residing in the Trang district of Takeo province, Lay is 38 years old and married. She has two children, one of whom still counts on her and is still at school. She has struggled to make a living by working as a rice farmer while her husband is a palm juice maker. She and her husband have engaged in this business for 22 years and are able to earn up to 11 US dollars per day. However, she is able to save only 2 US dollars per day after deducting all of her expenses.

Lay has never been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, before. Now, she is applying as the first-time borrower with VisionFund. She is going to use her portion to pay for her son’s tuition fees at the local university. She hopes that the loan will enable her to keep her son in university to pursue a degree so he can find a good job after graduation.
