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).

Nguyen Thi's story

Mrs. Nguyễn Thị N., 30 years old, has participated in the TYM Fund since 2007. Currently, both she and her husband work in their shop, selling groceries and snacks. This is the main source of income for the family. With their income of about 3,000,000 VND (183 USD) per month, Mrs. N. and her family have been able to steadily improve their standard of living. In the next lending cycle, Mrs. N. hopes to borrow 9,000,000 VND (550 USD) to invest in buying goods that will meet the demands of her customers during the upcoming lunar new year holiday.
