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 $725 helped to purchase cosmetic products, beverages and miscellaneous items to sell in her general store.

Dung's story

Dung is a 43-year-old married woman living in Ho Chi Minh City with her husband and four children.

Dung earns income to support her family by operating a general store, which she has run for the past 20 years. Dung would like to take out a loan to expand her general store by purchasing a greater range and quantity of cosmetic products, beverages and miscellaneous items to serve a larger number of customers.

She hopes that through the loan her business will be able to generate more income and enable her to improve her family's living conditions while putting aside savings for her children's education.
