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).

Mrs. Eng Ly Nget Village Bank Group's story

Thirteen people who live in Ampil Lech village in Takeo province make up a village bank loan group. Mrs. Eng Ly N. is the village bank president, selected by all the members. They will use the loan for different purposes so that it can improve their businesses in the future.

Mrs. Eng Ly N. is a weaver and her husband, Mr. Roeurn Yen, is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice on to sell to support his family. Since her business is going well, she wants to expand. Thus to improve her family's living conditions, Mrs. Eng Ly N. is seeking a loan to buy silk. She is the mother of three children, one of whom is a weaver, while another one is enrolled in local public school, and the youngest one is only three years old.
