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 build more rooms to rent out.


Chok's story

Mrs. Chok S. is 47 years old and lives with her husband and 3 children in a part of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She makes her living by building rooms and renting them to the nearby garment workers. She can typically make around $2 each day, while her husband works at a private company as a driver and makes around $5/day. Additionally, 2 of her children work at a private company, and the other attends school. Due to the increase in the number of her tenants, Chok S. is currently asking for $1000 to build more rooms to rent out. In the future, she would like to be able to build as many rooms as she could to generate more income.
