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 $1,200 helped to buy more cassava for planting.


Thy's story

Thy is 36 years old and a rural villager from Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cambodia. He has only a two-year-old son who needs his support. To provide for their daily cost of living, he grows paddy rice on one hectare of farmland as the core business and supplements his income via planting cassava and mango. He has engaged in this business for several years. Thy has been with VisionFund, Kiva's partner, for the past three loan cycles. He successfully has used his loan in managing his cash-crop planting business and to better support his household. Now, he is seeking a loan of 1,200 USD to buy more cassava for planting. He hopes to receive more yields from his crop so as to improve his standard lifestyle.
