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 $800 helped to purchase meat items for sale.


Sergei's story

Sergei owns a butcher business. He uses his car to go out to villages and purchase meat from farmers in bulk. Then he sells the meat at the local market. He has been in this business for eight years.


Since Sergei always sells fresh meat, he has many regular clients. Sergei would like to borrow 6,000 UAH so as to buy more meat items for sale.


His goal in business is to build his own kiosk and develop his business further.
