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 $1,575 helped a member to pay reaping fees and to support her sesame farming business.

Chork's Group's story

Chork, 56 years old and married, is a villager from Moung Russey district of Battambang province. He does rice cropping and sesame farming, each on one hectare of land. This business has returned him about 29,600 KHR. This is not the first loan for Chork with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He has repaid his past loan wisely and it has improved his lifestyle better than before. Now he leads a group of five borrowers to obtain a new loan. The total amount of the loan is 6,200,000 KHR, of which 1,000,000 KHR is his loan portion. As the leader, he will spend his entire portion of the loan to pay reaping fees and to support his sesame farming business. He hopes that he can collect his yield on time with a good income.
