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 $500 helped to purchase construction materials to rebuild his house.

Pheap's story

Pheap is 56 years old. He is a widower and resides with two children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. He has been growing rice and fattening up animals for more than twenty years, earning approximately $3 per day. One of his children is a garment worker who earns about $3 per day. Pheap wants to rebuild his present house. With this goal in mind, Pheap is requesting a loan of $500 to purchase construction materials. This money will help him provide better living conditions for his family. In the future, he would like to expand his business and help his child earn their bachelor’s degrees.
