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 $2,400 helped to pay for her son to study Civil Engineering.


Chanthorn's story

Chanthorn, 50, lives in a rural village of Kampong Cham province’s Koh Sotin district, Cambodia. She is widowed with eight children. To make a living, she has been growing tobacco for 30 years. To make more income, she also works for others for a fee. She earns about USD 7 per day from her current business.

Chanthorn is a first-cycle client with VisionFund. Now, she is asking for an education loan. She is going to use this loan to pay for her son to study Civil Engineering. She hopes that this loan will enable her to keep her son in the university until graduation and help to relieve her family's financial burden so she can sustain and grow her business.
