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 $750 helped to purchase a secondhand motorcycle for traveling needs and to buy a new cask for selling meatballs.


Teht's story

Mrs. Teht, 36, owns a small shop in front of her house where she sells coffee and other soft drinks. She typically makes around $4.50 in profit each day to ensure that her family has a comfortable life. Her husband helps her with the business. She has three kids, all of whom sell different kinds of products in their own kiosk next to their house.

Mrs. Teht is concerned that she is hardly going anywhere, and she dreams of having a vehicle, but she doesn’t have money yet to buy one. Therefore, Mrs. Teht would like to borrow a loan to purchase a secondhand motorcycle for traveling needs. With the rest, she will use to buy a new cask for selling meatballs.
