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 $800 helped to buy a Tok Tok for her son.


Vanna's story

Vanna, 47 years old, sells soya sauce. Her husband is a cake seller and their income is $8 per day. She has two children, 18 and 12. One is studying and the other works in a hotel earning $4 per day. Every month she has to spend $75 on food, $15 on electricity, $10 on school fees and $15 on transportation. She would like to request a loan of $800 to buy a Tok Tok (a motorbike with a cart attached) for her son to run a Tok Tok service. This loan can help her son to have a career to support himself. In the future, she plans to buy a store for her daughter to sell groceries in the market.
