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 $975 helped a member to buy potash, rice seed, and to pay for the plowing and reaping fees.

Chen's Group's story

Chen, a local farmer from Batambang province, is 26 years old and a mother of two children. She earns a living through farming rice on three hectares as the only source of the family's income. This is the business that she has had for six years, earning about 22,700 KHR per day. Chen has been with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) for the past five cycles and has fully repaid back her past loans with success. It has enabled her to upgrade her living status to a good condition.

Now, she leads a group of three to apply for a new loan from VisionFund. She and one of her co-borrowers are seeking for 1,400,000 KHR each while the remaining member is requesting 1,000,000 KHR. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy potash, rice seed, and to pay for the plowing and reaping fees. She hopes that she can gain a high yield from her crops and make a good profit for her children's sake.
