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).

Pem's story

Pem S., 49, is married and resides with her husband and three children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia, an area known for rubber plantations. S. sells groceries and raises pigs at home, earning an income of about 5 USD per day. Her husband is a repairman, earning an income of 4 USD per day to help cover the family expenses. S. has to spend 50 USD on food, 23 USD on electricity and water supplies, and 50 USD on other necessary expenses every month. S. is requesting a loan of 1000 USD to purchase containers to stock pig food. In the future, she would like to use any additional profit to repair her house. This is her first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner in Cambodia. S. appears in the photograph with her husband.
