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 $525 helped a member to buy plots of farmland for her rice farming.

Chanry's Group's story

Living in a wooden house with thatched walls in a rural village of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Chanry is aged 39 years and married with no kids. She and her husband earn a living through farming rice and selling firewood. Having been in this business for 13 years, they are able to earn about 17,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day, and they can save about 6,000 KHR each day for their future needs. Insufficient working capital to support her current business is the main challenge she faces.

Chanry’s group consists of two members who live in the same village, and she has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle. The past loan, which she fully paid back, has supported her family with enough food. Now, she is leading her group of two to ask for a loan. As the leader, Chanry will use her portion to buy plots of farmland for her rice farming. She hopes this loan will enable her to have more plots of farmland to grow her rice timely and fruitfully so as to make a better living.
