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 wood to make more drums to sell.


Way's story

Way is 19 years old. He is single and resides with his mother in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. He has been making drums to sell for more than four years, earning approximately $8 per day.

Way is requesting a loan of $500 to purchase wood to make more drums to sell. By doing so, he will produce more drums to sell and earn more income to financially support the family.

In the future, he would like to purchase a generator and a lathe to use in his business and build a new house as soon as possible.
