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 $525 helped to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland.


Thea's story

Living in a rural village from the Tbaung Khmum district of Cambodia, Thea is aged 32 years and married with five children, one of whom is still in school. She is a hard-working farmer who earns a living through farming sesame and cassava. To gain more income to better support the family, she raises fish for selling. Thea can earn about 24,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.

Thea has been with VisionFund for two cycles and completely paid back the past loans. The loans from VisionFund have helped her family expand the family’s businesses. Now requesting a loan of KHR 2,000,000, she will use this loan to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on water pumping. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her business to make more income so as to make a living better.
