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 $1,425 helped a member buying more drinks for her bar.

Robinah's Group's story

N. Robinah is the leader of the Matale loaning group. She is married and helps cater to four dependents. Robinah has a bar business where she sells cold drinks such as sodas, mineral water, wines, beers and local brew (malwa and tonto). She now has a banana plantation with food that she sells and uses for home business consumption. She says she is taking the loan in order to expand and restock because the profits from her business go towards her family. Robinah needs to buy more drinks for her bar so that she can sell more because her loyal customers will drink all that she stocks. She is grateful for her loans and her loaning group because they are cooperative and advise each other through their businesses.

In this group: Robinah, Margaret, Christine, Fatuma
