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 $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her cassava field.

Chea's Group's story

A citizen from a rural village of Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, Chea is aged 40 years and widowed with three children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. To make a living and support her family, Chea has been planting cassava as a primary business for 20 years. She is able to earn about 10,000 KHR (Cambodaian riels) to need the family’s needs.

This is the second microloan for Chea with Kiva’s partner VisionFund, while the other members are just starting with VisionFund this loan cycle. Now leading her group to request a loan, Chea will use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her cassava field. With this loan, she hopes to cultivate her cassava to earn more income to improve her lifestyle.
