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 $625 helped a member to buy a boat to support her fishing business.

Ben's Group's story

Ben, 63, is married and lives with her family in a village of the Ek Phnom district. She has six children. She has been farming rice and catching fish for 31 years, and the current business earns her family about 40,000 Riels (KHR) per day.

There are two members in this group and they both have had six loans from VisionFund. Ben completely paid back the past loans, which have helped her better support her current business. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy a boat to support her fishing business. She hopes to catch more fish so as to sell them for a good price.

In this group: Ben, Savy
