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 $750 helped to buy a second motorcycle for traveling needs.


Ou's story

The woman in the photo is Mrs. Ou, age 50. She lives in the Province of Kompong Tom in Cambodia, where she earns a living raising pigs. Since 2000, she has run this business, and it has provided her with income to get to her standard of living. She is married with eight children, five of whom are single and three are married already.

Her husband helps her in raising pigs as well as catching fish. In order to earn extra income, Mrs. Ou will be using the loan to buy a second motorcycle for traveling needs because she and her family always pay for a motor taxi when they want to go out. That is why Mrs. Ou made the decision to ask for a Kiva loan.
