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).

Wickamanaya's story

Wickamanaya is a 59 year old spice manufacturer. She has one machine for spice making. She collects different types of raw material for spices from the local market and after grinding them, she makes separate packets of spices to sell to shops nearby.

She has three daughters and one son. Her husband and daughter also support her business. Unfortunately she does not have sufficient money to continue her business, so she is asking for a loan of 30000 LKR to help grow her business.
