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 van for his business.


Ali's story

Ali is 59 years old and married with a son. He works as a van driver and has 10 years experience. His family is his sole priority and he desires to improve their financial and social position. He is always seeking to develop his business and increase his income. With this loan he wants to purchase a new van for work purposes and wants to help his son open his own business so that he can be self-dependent. He is good at his work and many tourists use his services to visit sites of interest during the tourist season.
