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 $800 helped to purchase cattle to resell.


Sophear's story

Sophear, 37 years old, is married and resides with a foster child in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. She has been selling soup for more than a year, earning approximately $5 daily. Her husband operates a business buying cattle for later resale at a profitable price, earning about $7 per day.



In order to improve her family’s livelihood and income, Sophear is requesting a loan of $800 to purchase more cattle to resale. In the future, she would like to expand her business and build a new house as soon as possible.
