A loan of $1,450 helped to pay for his tuition fee at university.


Phally's story

Residing in the Pouk district of Siem Reap province, Phally is 19 years old and single. To make a living, he has been teaching English for one year. The current job earns him about US $7 per day to meet the family’s needs.

Phally has never been with Kiva's partner, VisionFund, before. Now, he is applying for a loan to pay for his tuition fee at university to study Information Technology. Phally hopes that the loan will enable him to stay in university to pursue the degree so as to find a good job after graduation.
