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 $600 helped to pay for tuition fees.

Kakda's story

A young man residing in Battambang province, Kakda is 23 years old and works in a local organization in order to deal with the daily cost of living. He has occupied this job for three years.

Kakda wants to build up his skills, so he decided to take a first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He will spend this entire loan amount to pay for his university tuition fees; he is majoring in English. He hopes that this loan will provide him sufficient capital to cover his education costs, so he can obtain a job with higher position and make more income to improve his lifestyle.
