A loan of $1,450 helped to pay her son’s university tuition.

Samon's story

Samon is the married mother of two children, living in the Phnom Srouch district of Kampong Speu province.

She does rice-planting while her husband is a palm juice maker. With 30 years' experience in this business, she is able to earn up to USD 3 per day and keep USD 1.5 each day as savings.

Samon has joined VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, this cycle as a first-time borrower. She is now applying for a loan to pay her son’s university tuition.

She hopes this loan will enable her to keep her son in tertiary education until graduation and also help relieve the financial burden for her family. Thereby she can sustain and grow her business.
