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 $775 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cash-crops.

Van's Group's story

A married mother of five children, Van is a local resident of Battambang province and earns a living through rice cropping on two hectares of land. Besides helping her on the farmland, her husband also works for others for a fee. She is able to earn up to 40,000 KHR per day from the rice cropping, which she has been doing for 25 years. This is the third microloan for Van’s group, consisting of three female members including her. She has repaid back her past loans with success which were used to increase yield for her rice and increase her income. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer for her cash-crops. She hopes that she can earn more money for her kids’ sake.
