A loan of $1,100 helped to cover his son's entire tuition fee for four years.


Phal's story

Phal, a rural villager from Battambang province's Banon district, is 51 years old and he has five children, one of whom is still in school. To support his family, he has been working as a teacher for 15 years and supplements the family’s income by making and selling snacks. The current business earns him about US$49 per day but he can save about US$15 each day after daily expenses. This is the first loan cycle for Phal with Kiva's partner, VisionFund. Now he is applying for an education loan to cover the entire tuition fee for four years for his son, specializing in General Management. He highly hopes that this loan will enable him to send his son to university and also helps his son to obtain a higher education background and end up with a good job after graduation in order to support the family.
