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 fertilizer, seeds and pesticides for her plantation.

Chanthou's Group's story

Aged 29 years, Chanthou is a mother of two children living in a rural village of the Ek Phnom district, Cambodia. To support her family, Chanthou and her husband have been farming rice and planting cucumber for almost ten years in the village. To gain more income, she also sells grocery items in her local area.

Chanthou’s group consists of two members and she is the leader of this group. She and her group member are fifth-cycle clients. They fully repaid the past loans. Chanthou has wisely used the loans to better support her family. Now she is leading her group to request a loan. Chanthou will use her portion to buy fertilizer, seeds and pesticides for her plantation, and she will use a portion of it to buy more grocery items to resell. She hopes to increase her crop yields and sell them for a good price to make her living better.
