Kunthea is age 38 and married. She has five children, four of whom are dependent on the family, and they are now still in school. Living in a village of the Ou Dung district, Kunthea has been farming rice and selling snacks for almost 20 years. She manages to earn about US$16 per day to feed her family.

Kunthea is just with VisionFund for this cycle. Now she is asking for an education loan to pay her son’s university fees. She hopes this loan will enable her to keep her son in the university until graduation and also that it will help to relieve her family's financial burden so she can sustain and grow her business.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of VisionFund Cambodia’s higher education program, designed to provide financing to students in poor households who otherwise lack the financial support to continue their studies. Very few students have the financial resources necessary to go to college. VisionFund Cambodia has designed a lower-interest rate loan product for students, given the financial benefits associated with financing this loan upfront on Kiva. It is disbursed to the borrower in annual installments.

About VisionFund Cambodia

VisionFund Cambodia is a Christian organization and microfinance institution that provides small loans and other financial services to improve the lives of children, empower poor women and their families, and grow successful businesses. The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.

Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.
