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 $750 helped a member to pay for pesticide, fertilizer and plowing fee.

Som's Group's story

Som is 38 years old and a married father of five children. Two are in school and three are too young for schooling.

The main income source for his family is from cassava farming, which he has been involved in for 20 years. He can earn 36,100 KHR per day.

He is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). As the group leader, he will spend his entire loan portion to pay for pesticide, fertilizer and plowing fee. He hopes to collect a good yield and to sell it for a good price to improve his family's living situation.
