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 $700 helped to buy additional barrels of engine oil, gaskets, bolts and knots, gallons of oil brake fluid and spare parts.

Moses's story

Moses is twenty nine years old. He is married and has two children who are in school. Moses is an auto mechanic and a retailer of engine oil, brake fluid, gaskets and other car spare parts. He buys his supplies from oil filling station operators in barrels and sells in smaller quantities to his customers. Moses is handicapped by low working capital since oil prices have gone up. He therefore needs a loan to remain in business. He wants to use the loan to buy additional barrels of engine oil, gallons of brake fluid and spare parts to serve his customers. Moses believes this will enable him to make a good income from his business. He would be grateful for your assistance.
