“Without WB Finance’s Scholarship, I cannot continue my college in Phnom Penh.” said Mithona.
Mithona, 18 years old, is now a first-year student majoring in Banking at Mekong University, Phnom Penh. Mithona is from Kandal province. He grew up in poor family with six siblings. Mithona told us that his older sisters quit school to work in factory to support themselves and family. For Mithona, WB Finance’s scholarship is very important because this is the only chance he has to continue his higher education: otherwise he would end up working in factory too.
