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 $1,000 helped to buy timbers for the repair of her house.

Sâr's story

Sâr is 31 years old, a married woman who has two single children attending school. She provides them daily allowances and food with the income she generates from rice husbandry. She has been in the business for more than 13 years. Sâr described herself as a low-educated woman who struggles to work hard to provide her children a good education. She said that only education can alleviate poverty and she doesn’t want them to follow the path of difficulties she has experienced in her life.

At the present, Sâr would like to take out a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to buy timbers for the repair of her house. With any left amount, she will purchase a used motorcycle for home use purposes in order to satisfy her living needs. In the future, she hopes that she will be able to expand her business and lift her family out of poverty.
