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 $1,000 helped to pay the weeding fee for her cassava crop.


Touch's story

Touch, 41, is a married mother residing in a rural village located in Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has nine children, three of whom are still in school. She has been planting cassava on four hectares for ages as her main source of income. She can earn about 38,800 KHR per day which she uses to meet the family’s needs.

Touch is a client in her fifth cycle with VisionFund (Kiva's partner). The previous loan, that she has completely repaid, has helped her to have a decent house and to provide a good food for her family. Now she is seeking a new loan of 4,000,000 KHR to pay the weeding fee for her cassava crop. She hopes this loan will enable her to support her business in a timely manner and increase the family's income so she can expand her business.
