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).

Sony's story

Sony, 28, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries for over five years, earning approximately USD 10 per day. Her husband is involved in breeding pigs to sell. He earns approximately USD 5 per day. In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Sony is requesting for a loan of USD 800 to purchase more groceries to sell in order to generate more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to run an additional business renting music equipment and send her children to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it stronger to provide convenient living conditions for the family.
