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 $4,950 helped a member buying more clothes for sale.

Alice's Group's story

Alice N. is a very hardworking lady with a business selling clothes for women, men, and children in her locality. Her previous loan was very successful for her business. She is now seeking a new loan, again from Pearl Microfinance. One of the tangible benefits from her loan is that she bought herself a motorcycle that is making money for her. However she has a plan of buying another motorcycle so as to increase her income since her expenditures keep on increasing as her children join higher classes. Alice seeks a loan to be able to buy more clothes for sale. Alice says this is the right time to stock more clothes that will bring in profits since the school term is ending. And by the time her children go back to school, she will have made enough for their school fees and other school requirements.
