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 $1,500 helped to purchase a motorbike for commuting.

Thon's story

Thon is 38 years old. She is married and resides with six children in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. She has been selling vegetables for more than five years, earning approximately $4 daily. Two of her children are employed in a garment factory. They earn about $8 each day.

Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Thon is requesting a loan of $1,500 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her save some money on her transportation to support the family. In the future, she would like to build a new house and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees.
