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).

Ran's Group's story

Ran, 52, is a local villager from the Moung Russey district of Battambang Province. She manages a five hectare area for growing cassava, and her husband works for an NGO. With 10 years of experience in the current business, Ran is able to earn about 38,900 KHR per day.

This is the second loan for her group, which consists of two members. Her original loan has better supported her business at a good pace. Now, Ran and her joint borrower are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. Ran, as the group leader, will use her loan portion to pay for purchasing potash and pesticide and to pay a plowing fee. She hopes to grow her crops fruitfully and maintain her living status in a good manner.

In this group: Ran, Vanna
