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).

Trang's Group's story

Trang is 36 years old and lives with her two children and husband, who works as a mason. For the past three years, Trang has been running a food stall from the front of her house to earn income to support her family.

Trang is the Group Leader of a nine-member loan group living in Ho Chi Minh City. In the picture she is sitting second from the left, wearing a white jacket. Each of the group members is requesting loans to fund income-generating activities.

Trang is requesting a loan to purchase better quality foods and ingredients to make meals to sell from her stall. She hopes that this will help her to better meet the tastes of her customers and attract additional ones. She also hopes that through her loan she will be able to increase her income and save money for any future difficulties facing her family.
