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).

Tufaina's story

Tufaina F., 38, is married with four children. She has five years of experience in the plantation business. She sells to the village people and public, two days per week. She has had one previous loan with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 100 tala (~$35 US). SPBD loans are Tufaina’s only access to capital because she has never been able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks.
