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).

All members of the committee are mothers who work at various activities with the goal of strengthening their home economies and developing their businesses´ sustainability, with a view toward continuous growth.

For example, Elva J. makes cleaning products. She buys all the ingredients and makes the products according to the orders she receives from her customers. Elva visits her customers and writes down their orders and based on that prepares her products to sell.

She is asking for a loan to buy the ingredients for the cleaning products she prepares and sells.
