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 $300 helped to buy beehives to supplement her income.


Mary's story

Mary lives in a small town near Ukunda, close to the Kenyan coast. She is currently retired, and has five children. She likes beekeeping because she enjoys eating honey, and is excited that Honey Care employees will help take care of her beehives. This is her first loan to buy beehives, and she plans to use the extra income from her hives to build a house.
