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 $1,200 helped to purchase a motorbike for commuting.


Pheang's story

Pheang, 32, is married and resides with her husband and three children in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia. She has been growing rice for over three years, earning approximately $7 per day. Her husband is employed in the Cambodian Art Institution and earns approximately $4 per day.

Due to the difficulty in the family’s transportation, Pheang is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to use the money saved on her transportation expenses to support the family. In the future, she would like to rent a store in the market for selling fruit, and help her children get bachelor's degrees.
