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 $1,000 helped motorbike purchase.


En's story

En S. K. is thirty-one years old and married with one young child. She lives with her husband in Takeo Province. To make a living, she is employed in a restaurant as a chef, typically earning an income of $4 a day. Her husband also contributes to the family's income by operating his motor-taxi in the city and other nearby places, earning $3 a day.

The financial crisis has been difficult for businesses in Cambodia this past year. This factor has played into a difficult economic year for much of the country, K. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of these difficulties, K. is seeking to increase her income and improve her business. She is asking for a loan of $1000 to purchase a new motorbike for her husband's business. He needs to have his old motorbike repaired very often, and it consumes a lot of gasoline.
