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).

Huong's story

Huong is a 37-year-old married woman. She lives with three sons and her husband in Ho Chi Minh City. Her husband earns money by selling sewing machines. For two years, she has run a food stall to sell food and meals to people in her community.

Huong would like a loan to purchase better-quality food and to repair her stall. She hopes this will enable her to better meet the needs of her customers and to attract additional customers.

She also hopes that through her loan she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties facing her family.
