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).

Samoe's story

Mrs. K. Samoe was married in 1990 and has four children, three sons and one daughter. She began her farming after she got married. In addition, she has been weaving silk at home since 2005. Her husband is construction worker.

She has borrowed money from MAXIMA once before, and is now asking for a loan in the amount of $1,000. She will use this loan to purchase seeds and rent more land to expand her vegetable plantation.
