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 $700 helped to purchase watermelon to resell.

Vanny's story

Vanny is 51 years old. She is widowed and resides with her mother and a daughter in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fruit for more than ten years, earning approximately $6 daily. Her daughter is a garment worker who makes an income of $3 per day.

In order to improve her family’s finances, Vanny requests a loan of $700 to purchase watermelon to resell. By doing so, she would earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to have an appropriate place for her selling. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
