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 $150 helped a member to pay for her son's driver's license tuition fee.


Thol's Group's story

Thol, a rural villager from the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, is 40 years old and a mother of four children. Only two of her children are living with her; one is still young and another works at a rice mill earning a minimal income. Thol makes a living selling vegetables, and she has been in this business for 26 years, earning about 59,100 KHR per day. She is able to save only about 16,400 KHR after expenses.

Thol is the leader in a group of two borrowers, and she has never borrowed from Kiva partner VisionFund before. Thol is going to use her entire loan portion to help her son to pay for his driver's license tuition fees and examination. She hopes that her son is able to obtain a driver's license so he can get a better job and help the family.
