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 $3,400 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


Mrs. Ya Pom Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Ya P. is a village bank president who has been selected by all the members. Each group member will use their loan for different purposes. This village bank loan has twenty-two members who live in Chhmar Puon village in Kandal province.

Mrs. Ya P. is a farmer who owns 1-hectare of land to cultivate rice for supporting her family, and her husband is a construction worker. In the rice field, they have a problem because their field is infertile. Thus, in order to have a productive tobacco crop, Mrs. Ya P. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rest of the loan she would like to use to hire farmer laborers to plow her field. She is a mother of a child who is too young to go to school or work. All of the members are shown in the picture, but some of them are blocked.
