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 $500 helped a member to buy a boat for fishing.

Roun's Group's story

Living in a rural area of the Mongkoul Borey district of Banteay Meanchey province, Cambodia, Roun is 32 years old. He is a married father of two daughters who all depend on him. He is a fisherman and sometimes works for others for a fee to earn extra income. He has been in this business for almost 10 years. The current business earns him about 20,000KHR per day, and he manages to save about 10,000KHR each day after daily expenses.

Roun has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and has successfully paid back the past loan, while the other group member is in the first cycle with VisionFund. The first loan has helped him relieve his family’s burden and improve their livelihood. Now he and his group member are applying for a loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000KHR each. As the group leader, he is going to use his portion to buy a boat for fishing. He hopes this loan will enable him to catch more fish so as to improve his living standard.
