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 $475 helped to buy a pump machine.

Samorn's story

Mrs. Samorn M. is a villager in Si Sla village, Takeo province, and she was born in 1961. She is a farmer who owns a two-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Vuthy Vong, is a soldier who gets a low salary to help support his family.

Her problem is that her field is far away from an irrigation system, and she does not have enough money to solve that problem. So to improve her production, Mrs. Samorn M. is seeking a loan to buy a pump machine, and with the rest of the loan she will buy fertilizer, pesticide, and hire a plow machine to plow her field.

She is the mother of a child who is now married. Her husband is shown in the photo with her.
