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).

Loan's story

Loan is a 41-year-old married woman with two daughters. She lives with her family in Ho Chi Minh City.

Loan and her husband own a soft-drink shop and run a small street-side karaoke coffee house. Loan has been involved in these activities for six years. She would like to take a loan to purchase beverages and food for her customers. This will enable her to earn more money to cover the cost of family expenses, especially education fees for her daughters. Loan hopes that in the future she can save more money to improve her family's living conditions and reinvest in her business.
