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 motorized hand tiller for her husband.


Vannak's story

Mrs. Vannak C., 29, (pictured here) and her husband, Mr. Bunthoeun Yem, 28, have been married for five years and have two children: one son and one daughter. Both of them are still young. The family lives along National Road Number Five about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh City, the capital city of Cambodia.

Vannak has been a tailor since 1998 and runs a tailoring shop at her home. Her husband is a farmer. She is asking for her first loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorized hand tiller for her husband.
