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 $850 helped to purchase one additional machine for cutting timbers.


Anathalie's story

Anathalie has been selling timber and this is her fifth successful year in this business. Anathalie is 47 years old and married with two children. The hours of her business are from 7 am to 6 pm every day.

Anathalie, after realizing that she is not able to satisfy the demands of her customers because of an insufficient number of machines, would like to request one more additional machine which will allow her to cut more timber to sell. Thus, she will be able to satisfy the demands of her customers and she hopes that her profits will increase. With these profits, Anathalie plans to keep reinvesting for better financial stability and a better future for her family.
