Krista Plank is a single Canadian woman who’s living in China.

She’s raising her six-year old son, Malaya. When she graduated from university, Krista had $50,000 in student loan debt. “I want to avoid that for my son,” she says. That’s why Krista is investing money for Malaya’s education.

But because Krista lives overseas, she can’t open such an account.
