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).

Namo's story

Having more than five children in Samoan family is not a good result in some parents, especially in rural area but Namo M. from the village of Solosolo has tried her best for her five kids, she joined SPBD Programme in 2004. She had training with Tourism Authority for only two weeks based on small businesses and since then has used her loans from SPBD for her taro plantation, vegetable garden and donut business.
Namo is pictured in front of her beach fales which are in the background. She wishes to use her Kiva loan to build another fale.
