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 to buy rice seed, cassava seed, fertilizer and pesticide, and to pay the rent on the farmland she works.


Pheang's story

Residing in a rural village of the Dambae district, in Kampong Cham province, Cambodia, Pheang is a 63-year-old widow. She is a mother of three children. This single mother offers a decent life for the family by planting cassava and growing rice. Having been in her current business for more than 30 years, Pheang earns approximately 35,000KHR per day and saves around 23,000KHR, after paying the daily living expenses.

This is Pheang’s second time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan enabled her to cover daily expenses and improve her family’s living standard. Pheang is now requesting a KHR 2,000,000 loan, to strengthen her current business by buying rice seed, cassava seed, fertilizer and pesticide, and paying the rent on the farmland she works. This industrious mother (Pheang) wants to earn as much income as possible from the business that she has been doing, generating more income for the family.
