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 $800 helped to replace her old motorcycle.


Long's story

Long R., 63, a dessert seller. She is a single mother of five children: two are single and the rest are married. Four of her children are working in different occupations (two are garment workers, one works for a publishing company, and another is a rice farmer). As their vehicle is getting old and breaks down frequently, Long R. and her children face difficulties traveling to work or anywhere else. She is requesting a loan in order to replace her old motorcycle.
