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).

Arance's story

Arance is a 38-year-old lady and married to Yusuf, a 41-year-old man. They’ve been blessed with two children, namely, Indah, 18, in the second year of Senior High School, and Angel, 14, in the second year of Junior High School.

Arance runs a kiosk business, to assist her husband by generating more income for her family. She initiated the business using her own capital. Bath soap, detergent, stationery, cigarettes, candies and snacks are available at her kiosk.

Arance has just recently established a brand new kiosk, in a different area, alongside a highway. She needs to add more goods to the new kiosk, such as sugar, coffee, cooking oil, and kitchen equipment. Arance needs more money, in order to do so. Therefore, she requested a loan of IDR 10,000,000 from TLM. She really hopes that her business will run well, so she will be able to repay the loan to TLM.
