KIVA:: Our July Entrepreneur

Just as our parents may have helped us buy a car or scooter to get to work and find our own feet, Phat from Phnom Penh, Cambodia was hoping to do the same. Father to three daughters - as can be deduced from the posters decorating his walls - he has worked hard his whole life to support his family and give them all he can. Thanks to Mash, our clients and all the field staff, we have made this happen. Phat, who is a fisherman, and his wife will be able to assist their daughter by buying her a scooter to get to her job in a garment factory. While he had managed to raise some of the money to put towards her new wheels, gaining a loan through KIVA has helped him supplement the remainder until he can pay us back.

Whether you have been involved with Mash as an event manager, brand ambassador or client, you have helped us along the way to support entrepreneurs around the world. Another job completed equals another life-changing donation; simple as that.
