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).

Sovanney's Group's story

Age 38, Sovanney is married with four children living in the Moung Russey district of Battabang province. Currently, she needs to care for only three children as they are still in school. She is able to deal with the daily food consumption by selling Chinese noodle and managing her half hectare of cassava crop. To help her in earning more income, her husband works as a blacksmith. The current business has returned her about 31,900 KHR per day.

In her group, there are four members, three second-cycle clients and one four-time borrower. She has succeeded in making good use of her loan to sustain her business, the same as her lifestyle. Now, she is a group leader. The total loan amount that her group is requesting is 4,000,000 KHR. Sovanney, whose loan portion is 1,000,000 KHR, will use her loan portion to buy gasoline for pumping water, pesticide, and to pay labor fees. She hopes this loan will help her to support her business over time and to get back a good yield.

In this group: Sovanney, Saroeun, Chenda, Komsoeurng
