Last week, I contributed our 200th loan to Kiva. I am very keen on helping people in under-developed countries to improve their life and perceive that Kiva is a very worthwhile organisation to support. My small contribution of $25 was combined with that of sixteen others in places that range from Norway to China. Together, we raised a total loan of $600. I’ll track progress over the period of the loan and then when it is paid back, I will lend the money someone else.

Here are the details of Chiv Sokheng, to whom we made this loan.
Sokheng is 24 years old and a resident of the Pursat Province in Cambodia. She has two children, both of whom are under her care. She is married to Pech, 26, who is a motor-taxi driver. Sokheng is a pig raiser which enables her to earn good profits. She always sells to the slaughter every four months when they are big enough to be sold. Sokheng is a responsible mother and neighbor, and she wants to increase her income through her business. Sokheng is applying for a loan to buy more piglets for her pigpen.
