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).

Sorn's story

Sorn Y., 62, is married and lives with one of her children in the Kampong Chhnang province. She sells desserts and works as a farmer, making US $3 each day, while her husband also does some farming and works as soldier, making about US $3 each day as well. Sorn Y. is asking for a loan of US $200 to purchase another farmland to grow more rice. She sees this new rice field as a good economic investment and will use it to increase her income and improve her standard of living.
