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 purchase supplies needed for the construction of his home.

Yin's story

Yin is a 41-year-old farmer living with his family in Kompong Speu province. Rice farming is the primary business and source of income for his family. He grows rice on a few hectares of farmland and he is able to make a decent income to supply the household. However, the income is barely enough to cover his daily costs, so he also works as a paid laborer for additional income. Most of the villagers appreciate his hard work. Yin’s wife opened a tailoring shop in their community to help him in generating a livelihood and uplifting a better standard of living.

Recently, Yin has hired a few laborers to perform the construction in renovating his present house but he has insufficient capital. Therefore, he is applying for a loan in the amount of 1,000 USD to purchase supplies needed for the construction. Yin has nevertaken a loan with HKL before and it will be his first loan. He promises to pay it back in full.
