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 $350 helped a member to buy necessary material to sow rubber tree seedlings.

Mom's Group's story

Aged 44, Mom is the mother of three kids who are living with her and helping the family's business. For 12 years, she has sown rubber tree seedlings for resale in order to support the family’s basic needs. From this business, she is able to save about 7,000 KHR per day.

Mom has been with VisionFund since 2011 as a first-cycle client. The loan, which has been successfully repaid, has enabled her to continue her current business and to keep her children in school. Now, she is confidently leading a group of two to apply for a new second-cycle loan. She is requesting 1,200,000 KHR and her group member is applying for 200,000 KHR.

She will buy necessary materials (i.e. plastic bags) to support the sowing business. She hopes to sell a lot of rubber tree seedlings so she can earn more income.

In this group: Mom, Heng
