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 $1,725 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pay the costs of plowing.

Sophai's Group's story

Sophai is a 34-year-old married woman from Sangke district in Battambang province of Cambodia. She has one dependent daughter who is still in school. To support the family, she has been working on a one-hectare rice field for five years. In the past year, the rice has grown improperly due to lack of water, so her crop yield is low which remains the main problem for her family.

In a group with four other members, Sophai is the leader. She received five loans from VisionFund consecutively and paid back all the loans, which have helped her to keep her daughter in school and maintain her household, with success. Now she is applying again for her sixth loan cycle for an amount of 1,400,000 KHR, the same amount as all her group members. She will use this portion to buy fertilizers and pay the costs of plowing. She expects this loan will improve her family’s conditions.

In this group: Sophai, Phoert, Pheach, Channa, Tha
