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 order rice in bulk to store for future sale.


Rit's story

The picture above shows Mr. Rit P., who is a man on low income living in Phnom Penh City. He owns a big area of farmland next to his house, on which he and his wife grow a variety of vegetable crops. Rit P. always plants his crops twice a year and can collect his mature crops three times per year.

For this coming harvesting rice season, rice is commanding the lowest price. Rit P. thinks that it is the time when he could earn additional income, so he is requesting a loan for capital so he can order rice in bulk to store in his home. He will sell it to gain income when the rice commands a high price.
