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 $550 helped to buy a motorbike.


Va's story

Mrs. Va is the mother of two who has been working as a farmer since 1999. She and her husband work together in their farm field and earn a daily profit of approximately 5 USD to provide for expenses such as food, education, and utilities.

Mrs. Va says she has a problem with meeting her family’s traveling needs. When they need to travel they must hire a motor taxi. To reduce this expense, Mrs. Va is requesting a loan through Kiva to buy a new motorbike. She plans to use the motorbike for traveling and also to start a motor taxi service to make extra income.
