Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,450 helped a member to purchase fertilizers for his wife to resell.


Mr. Sokheng Hang Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan, which consists of fifteen people, is located in Tonle Bati village in Takeo province and each member will use the loan for a different purpose.

Mr. Sokheng H. is the village bank president. He is a farmer who owns 2-hectare (5-acre) field on which he cultivates rice.

His wife, Mrs. Nhoek Sokhun, is a grocer. In this business, she can earn a little income to support the family. Now she wants to add to her business by purchasing fertilizers to resell to earn more income. Thus, Mr. Sokheng H. decided to ask for a loan for this purpose.

Mr. Sokheng H. is 55 years old and the father of three children, all of whom stay at home to do housework and help with their mother’s business.

In this group: Sokheng, Sokhom, Srey Mom, Sophea, Phally, Brong, Sok Ry, Naron, Thary, Sidet, Thary, Sokheng, Sina, Sinat, Thol
