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 $1,100 helped to purchase farm supplies and pigs.


Vann's story

Vann is an industrious woman who owns and manages a farming business and a hog-raising business to support her family. She has been in these businesses for almost 22 years. At the field, Vann plants and takes care of a few kinds of vegetable crops while she looks after her family and pigs at home. Vann is now 48 years old and a mother of two children, who currently live separately with their new families.

To improve her farming business as well as her pig-raising business, Vann decided to take out a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase farm supplies such as seeds, fertilizers and insecticides for her crops. Also, with the balance of funds, she will purchase additional pigs and feed for fattening them. Through the loan use, Vann has a strong commitment to work out her plan and upgrade her living standard. Vann hopes to experience a better quality of life someday.
