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).

Sveta makes money running her own business selling potatoes. Five years ago together with her friends, this businesslike woman decided to increase her welfare, and out of her profits she has managed to obtain an apartment.
