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 $700 helped to purchase spare parts for her husband's automobile repair business.

Pov's story

Pov is 42 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and their five children in Battambang Province, Cambodia.

Pov has been a tailor for over three years and is successful in her career. Her husband is a mechanic who repairs automobiles to generate income for the family. In order to improve her husband’s business, Pov is requesting a loan of $700 to purchase automobile spare parts to sell as well as to repair automobiles for his clients. This loan will enable her husband to generate more income to support the family.

In the future, she would like to expand her business and rebuild her present house to make it much stronger. In addition, she hopes to support her children while they study to earn bachelors degrees.
