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 $600 helped to purchase two cows for her farming project.

Sorn's story

Mrs. Sorn is a thirty-two-year-old married woman who resides in Kompong Cham province, Cambodia. She is a local rice farmer in the province and she also takes some time to work as domestic laborer on a plantation. Normally, she is able to generate an average of $5.00 per day to meet her financial needs. Her husband shares the responsibilities by working as construction worker around the province.

Mrs. Sorn is taking out this loan in order to purchase two cows for her farming project. She said that she won't need to hire other animals again so her expenses will be reduced. In the future, she wishes to fix and decorate some parts of her house. Most importantly, she will give a constant support to her children until they finish senior-high school.
