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 $1,200 helped to purchase fertilizer and a motorbike.


Ty's story

Ty T., 46, is a widowed farmer who lives with her two children. Living in the Takeo province, she typically makes US$1 every day and is aided by her daughter who works in a garment factory. The Takeo area has not seen favorable weather conditions for farming this past year. Along with increased inflation, it has been a difficult year economically in much of Cambodia. As a farmer, Ty T. is taking a lot of the brunt of the economic downturn. That is why she has approached CREDIT with a request for a loan. Ty T. is asking for a loan of US$300 to purchase fertilizer and a motorbike for her daughter to commute to work, a purchase that she sees as a good opportunity to increase her income.
