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).

Pham Thi's story

Ms. Phan Thị Thuỷ is 34 years old. She has been a participant of TYM Fund since 2000. Currently, Ms. Thuỷ is raising livestock and gathering/buying scrap (metal); while Mr. Khải, her husband, works in construction. With an income of 3,500,000 VND per month, Ms. Thuỷ's family continues to develop their ability to improve their lifestyle and put money towards providing the three children with an education.

For this upcoming loan cycle, she hopes to borrow 10,000,000 VND to purchase ten pigs and animal feed; any remaining funds will be used to gather/buy scrap (metal).
