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 $1,225 helped to pay for her son’s university tuition.


Sou's story

A married mother of one child living in the Baray district of Kampong Thom Province, Sou is 63 years old. Her child is still in school. To make a living, she sells grocery items while her husband is a paid worker. She and her husband have been in this business for 28 years.

Sou has been with VisionFund for two cycles. She is now applying for a loan to pay for her son’s university tuition. She hopes that this loan will enable her to keep her son in school until graduation and also help to relieve the financial burdens on her family thereby allowing her to sustain and grow her business.
