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 $1,000 helped to pay for labor, for weeding of her cassava field.

Yon's story

Yon is 49 years old and a mother of two children. She lives in Dambae district, Kampong Cham province. She manages three hectares of cassava growing, with assistance from her husband, in order to ensure the survival of her family. The current business has enabled her to save about USD 4 per day, after deducting the living expenses.

For Yon, this is the second loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Her first loan supported her business in a timely manner. Since she is again in need of working capital to support her businss, she is applying for a new loan. For this loan cycle, she will again use her funds to pay for labor, for weeding of her cassava field. She hopes to increase the yield, so that she can maintain her standard of living.
