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).

Chrep's story

Chrep, aged 41, is a widowed woman with four grown-up children, two of whom are still students. Chrep devotes herself to a farming business, growing rice in Rokhak Kiri district, Battambang. She has been in the farming business for more than 19 years and it is the main source of her income.

Chrep has an unhygienic latrine at home, so she would like to request a loan to buy materials and to pay for labor costs for the construction of a latrine. Thanks to the water loan program with a special rate offered by Hattha Kaksekar Limited, Chrep is encouraged to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions, to safeguard the health of her family and to protect the environment.
