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 buy sand and cement to improve the sculpture business.


Nourn's story

Nourn K., 31, is single and resides in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia, an area known for rubber plantation. K. manufactures traditional sculptures to sell, earning an income of about USD 25 per day.

K. has to spend USD 80 on food, USD 10 on electricity and water supplies, and USD 300 on other necessary expenses every month. K. is requesting a loan of USD 1000 to purchase more sand and cement to expand his current business.

In the future, he would like to use any additional profit to repair his house. This is his first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner in Cambodia.
