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).

Otelia's story

An $800 loan is being offered to Otelia to improve her business. She has a kiosk where many people come to buy every day. She has been involved with this business since 2002.

Otelia feels so comfortable running her business because she can earn money every day. She will buy some additional supplies such as eggs, noodles, cigarettes, coffee, sugar, salt, milk, breads, Fanta, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Sagiko, salt, and shampoo

Running a business has made Otelia independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help her family. She hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
