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 $400 helped to purchase a motorbike.

Bou's story

Cambodia operates as a free market, so lots of couples co-operate and try to make an effort to find which job is suitable for them to earn an income for the family. With many choices of jobs, Mrs. Bou has been running a business selling vegetables. She sells her vegetables in one market far away from her community. From this business, Bou earns about $4 USD. Everyday, Bou must spend some money for a motor taxi for operating her business. Because of the long distance and no motorbike for operating her business, Bou has decided to request some funds from HKL and Kiva to purchase a motorbike for facilitating her business. She hopes that this fund will help her meet happiness and gain more profit each day.
