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 buy more vegetables to stock her store.

Chan's story

Chan N., 58, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia, an area known for pre-angkorean Temples. N. is a vegetable seller in the city, earning an income of USD 3 per day. One of her children is employed at the factory, earning an income of about USD 1 per day to help cover the family expenses. The family has to spend USD 40 on food, USD 5 on electricity supply, and USD 55 on other necessary expenses every month. N. is requesting a loan of USD 500 to purchase more vegetable to stock her store. 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.
