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 $400 helped to purchase a pair of cattle to plow the farmland.


Sun's story

Sun N. is a 46-year-old married woman and a local villager living in a medium-sized home with family members in a rural area of Siem Reap Province. She owns a piece of farmland that she inherited many years ago from her grandparents. She uses this land to grow different kinds of crops. Sun N. has another financial earner in her husband who is a vehicle repairman. This couple has three school-aged kids, while another one is married and lives independently.

To help alleviate her hard physical labor on the farm, Sun N. is taking out a loan to purchase a pair of cattle that she will use to plow the farmland.
