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. Touch Sam Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has seventeen people who have selected Mrs. Touch S. as a village bank president. Mrs. S. was born in 1963 and is located in Chrouy village, Takeo province. Each member of the group will use their portion of the loan in various ways to increase their income for this current year. Mrs. Touch S. is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. She is also a Khmer cake seller, door-to-door. She is a widow with a child who is a laborer. She tries to work a lot but she earns very little to support her family's living costs. So to improve this condition, Mrs. Touch S. is seeking for a loan to buy three piglets for breeding to start a new business.

In this group: Touch, Sdeurng, Saroeun, Kea, Vanna, Pha, Rang, Thul, Srann, Yoy, Lun, Pov, Mon, Srey Aun, Sophi, Sophy, Tang
