A loan of $1,200 helped to cover her education fees.


Leam's story

Leam is 25 years old and single. She lives with her parents and other siblings in a rural village of Prasat Bakong district, Siem Reap province.

Leam graduated from high school in 2012 and enrolled to University of South-East Asia in their province. She is now a second-year student majoring in accounting. She loves this major because she thinks that it’s suitable for her personality. To help her parents cover her education costs, Leam is currently employed part-time at a golf club and earns a monthly income of USD45.00.

Due to the family’s financial constraints, Leam is experiencing difficulties to cover her education fees, so she decided to take out a loan in the amount of 1,200 US dollars, which will enable her to cover the overall fees for the remaining two-years of classes.

Leam is very happy and thankful for the loan funded via a program like Kiva to allow poor students to pursue a higher education, and contribute to the future development of Cambodia.
