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 $1,000 helped to purchase sugarcane for resale.


Sreymom's story

Sreymom (in the photo) is 31 years old, and her husband Meab is 27 years old. They live in a village near the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have one young son.

Sreymom and her husband sell sugarcane. They buy sugarcane from their fellow villagers under contract. This means that they pay money before the harvesting season and then they collect sugarcane to sell at Phnom Penh market. In addition, Sreymom also operates a business planning and decorating for weddings. Her husband also drives a taxi.

Sreymom is applying for her first loan of 1,000 USD to purchase more sugarcane under contract for resale.
