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 $1,050 helped a member to buy seeds, fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland.

Chanthorng's Group's story

Chanthorng is 33 years old and married. She lives in a rural area of the Ratanak Mondul District of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has one son who is dependent on her. To make a living, she has been planting corn for 10 years as a primary source of the family’s income. The current business earns her about 18,000 riels (KHR) per day and she manages to save about 10,000 KHR per day.

Chanthorng has been with VisionFund for six cycles, while the other members have been with VisionFund for one cycle. Now she is leading her group to a-sk for a new loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, Chanthorng will use her portion to buy seeds, fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland and use part of it on labor costs in plowing the rice field. She hopes this loan will enable her to get a high yield from her rice paddy so as to make a better living and keep her children in school.

In this group: Chanthorng, Samneang, Kunthea
