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 $300 helped buying more bananas to sell, fried.


Nourn's story

B. Nourn, 54, has been a motor-taxi driver providing transportation services in Phnom Penh City since 2000. His wife, 57, sells fried bananas (a very common snack for Cambodian people). He and his wife have 6 children: two of them are students and the rest are employed at a garment factory.



To make a better income, B. Nourn wants to take US$ 300 loan from KIVA to expand his wife's current business. Then, if she has more income and savings from the family’s expenses, she will be able to run a grocery business in her house. (His wife is presented in the picture)
