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 $350 helped to buy timber to build a new house.

Roeung's story

Mrs. Roeung C. is a villager in Prothorng Village in Takeo Province. She is 26 years old and the mother of a three year old child who is too young for school. She is a farmer who can make a little revenue from rice because she owns a small field. Her husband, Mr. Mao Kan, is a construction worker who can make $4 a day. He is shown on the left in the picture.

Even though Mrs. C. and her husband each have businesses, they still cannot afford to build a new house. Thus, Mrs. C. decided to ask for a loan to buy timbers to build a new house to replace the old one.
