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 $1,200 helped to buy new motorbike for her husband.


Thay's story

Thay (in the photo), age 37, lives in a village near the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. She has two daughters: one attends school and another one is still young.

Thay sells grocery items at home, while her husband is a motor taxi driver. She is asking for a loan to buy a new motorbike for her husband because the old one is breaking, meaning Thay’s husband spends lots of money on repairs.
