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 $500 helped to spend on wedding party for her son.


Ham's story

Mrs. Ham Y. has been spending almost her entire life raising crops and a few animals to make a profit. She is married and has four children, one of whom is already married and lives away from home and the other three are single. Her husband works in the farm fields frequently alongside her.

Ham Y. has a single son who needs a partner in his wife, but he requires money to make a wedding party. Because he doesn’t have money yet, Mrs. Ham Y. has decided to pursue a loan to be used to spend on a wedding party for her son.
