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. Pach Phally Village Bank Group's story

Nineteen people from Trapeang Roka village in Takeo province are members of this group loan. They will use their portion of the loan in varied ways to improve their family living. The members have selected Mrs. Pach P. to be the group president.

Mrs. Pach P. is a noodle seller in the local village where she is able to earn some money to support her family. She is also a pig breeder. Her husband, Mr. Vannareth Vat, is a farmer who owns a 3-hectare plot of land where he grows rice to sell to support the family.

In the rice field, this couple has problems because their land has infertile soil, is located far away from an irrigation system, and has a lot of insects. To improve their rice production, Mrs. Pach P. is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer, gasoline, and pesticide.

Mrs. Pach P. is a mother of three children, two of whom are students and the other is still only 2 years old.
