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).

Aen's Group's story

Residing in a rural area of the Srey Snom district in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province, Aen is a 60-year-old widow. She is a single mother of seven children, one (a son) of whom is under her responsibility and currently in school. To support the family, Aen works as a rice farmer on a 1.5 hectare (3.7 acre) plot of farmland. She earns about 5,000 KHR each day and saves approximately 2,500 KHR after paying her daily expenses. Aen, a second-time borrower, is leading a group of two. Aen and the group's other member, who is just a first-time borrower, request loans in the amount of 400,000 KHR and 100,000 KHR, respectively, for a total of 500,000 KHR. Her earlier loan enabled Aen to better meet her family’s needs. This time, she will utilize her portion of the loan to pay for the cost of labor. Single mother Aen expects her portion of the loan to help her to harvest her rice on time.
