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 fertilizer and to cover the cost of labor.

Touch's story

As a resident of a rural area of Dambae district located in Kampong Cham province in Cambodia, Touch is 44 years of age and married with three children, one (a son) of whom is still dependent on her. The other two children are assisting in the family's businesses, which are growing rice and planting cassava. Touch earns around 16 USD per day through the current businesses and manages to save approximately 6 USD for future needs after deducting her daily cost of living. This will be Touch's second time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The first loan that she already received and completely repaid has helped her better support her family. She is now applying for a USD 1,200 loan to spend on buying fertilizer and covering the cost of labor. With the help of this loan, she expects a boost in the family's income as well as an increase in the living standard of her family.
