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).

Kim Thi's story

Mrs. L. Thi Kim, 48 years old, has been participating in the Fund for 5 years. Currently her family's main source of income is from selling coal and her husband's and son's salary as construction workers. Everyday, she takes coal home and packs it to sell to the locals, while her husband and oldest son work, so the family's total income is very stable. With an income of 4 million VND/month, the family's life is improving day by day. In this round of funding, she would like to borrow 15 million VND to invest in buying more raw materials to use in the family's business.
