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 $1,000 helped to purchase a new refrigerator.


Antoine's story

Antoine is a 51-year-old married man. A father of three children, he opened his business in 1990 to earn income to help satisfy the needs of his family. He opened a butcher shop and, over the years, he became well known in the whole region for his good business reputation.

Antoine repaid his first loan successfully and, after developing his business, he is asking for a new loan of $1,000 to purchase a new refrigerator to display his goods.
