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 a motorbike for her son.


Vy's story

Vy, 52 years old, is a housewife. She is a single mother with four children. One is working in the factory, and her son is a motor taxi driver. They can make $11 per day for their income.

Every month, she has to spend $100 on food, $20 on transportation, $15 on electricity and $20 on other expenses.

She would like to request a loan of $1,000 to buy a motorbike for another son who is also a motor taxi driver.

In the future she would like to have a tailoring shop at her house if her children can help with the expense, because every expense in the family is dependent on three of her children.
