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).

Chanthy's story

Chanthy, 46, resides in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia. Chanthy and her husband buy cows and buffalo to resell. Chanthy is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to purchase a motorbike for her husband to travel to buy cows and buffalo to resell. By doing so, her family will be able to generate more income. In the future, she would like to use any additional income to repair her house. This will be her first loan from KREDIT, a longstanding Kiva partner.
