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 $600 helped a member to buy an additional plot of farmland for growing rice.

Ley's Group's story

Originally from the Kror Kor district of Pursat Province, Ley is 44 years old and married. She has four children in total, two schoolchildren and two who are paid workers.

Ley's main business is paddy rice cultivation, which she has been doing for ages and is able to earn up to 26,300 KHR per day. Ley's first loan with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) was five loan cycles ago, which she has repaid with success, and it better supported her business and helped her keep up a good standard for her living conditions.

Now, she forms a group of three to seek a new loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy an additional plot of farmland for growing rice. She hopes to make more income from her business so she can keep her two children in school until the tertiary level.

In this group: Ley, Channeth, Min
