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 $775 helped a member to buy a cow to help her in farming business.


Yom's Group's story

Yom, 61, is a rice farmer in a rural village of the Pursat Province’s Sampov Meas district of Cambodia. She has six children, one of whom is dependent on her, and they are still in school in the local area. She has been growing rice on two hectare of farmland as well as planting watermelon, cassava and bean for twenty years. She is able to earn about 17,000 KHR per day, but she can manage to save about 7,000 KHR each day.

Yom’s group consists of two members who live in the same village, and she is the first cycled client with VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy a cow to help her in the farming business. Yom hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income for her paddy field so as to fulfill her dream to buy a tractor for supporting her business.
