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. Ma Leap Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Ma Leap is the village bank president who has been selected by the thirteen members of this village bank loan. They will use their portion of the loan in various ways to improve their family's standard of living.

Mrs. Ma Leap was born in 1981. She is a knitter and a tailor who can earn some income to support her family while her husband, Mr. Sokuntha, is a construction worker and a farmer who owns a plot of land where he can grow rice to feed his family. Presently, Mrs. Ma Leap needs some money because she wants to buy a cow to raise to start a new business. So Mrs. Ma Leap would like to request a loan to add to her savings to buy a cow.

In this group: Ma Leap, Chanly, Vanny, Sophal, Lorn, Phan, Kan, Khun, Sopha, Sophoeun, Sophy, Leang, Chroen
