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 to purchase a motorbike for her daughters to use to commute to work.


Phlorng's story

Mrs. Phlorng D., age 60, is a widow with three sons and seven daughters. Six of them are married and live outside the family home and another two have full-time employment in Phnom Penh City. Phlorng’s family lives in a small village on National Road Number 2 about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Phlorng has been a farmer since 1979. She grows rice. Two of her daughters are garment factory workers and they spend a lot of money on transportation costs, so it’s difficult for them to manage income to support the family. To improve the situation, Phlorng is requesting her first loan of $1,000 in order to purchase a motorbike for her daughters to use to commute to work.
