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 $1,200 helped to buy rice.


Hoan's story

Hoan S., 24 years old, lives with her family in the province of Siem Reap in Cambodia. Her husband is a vegetable grower and they do not have any children. For over a year, she has been working in the rice trade business: collecting rice from farmers and re-selling it to earn profit. She currently earns average of $10 per day.

Hoan S. believes her investment is doing well because she is gaining more regular customers. This business is S.'s main source of stable income for the family. In order to continue improving the business, S. is asking for a loan of $1200 to buy additional rice to sell in the future.
