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).

Sona's story

Sona is 49 years old. She purchases and resells cows, poultry, and sheep with her husband. She has four children. Sona would like to request a loan in order to purchase additional cows to increase her inventory and to meet customer demands. She believes this will lead to greater revenue and, ultimately, to greater profit for her family. In the future, Sona would like to reinvest the earnings generated by this loan back into her business to purchase additional cows and poultry to increase her family's income further. They plan to use the increased income to fund their children's education. Sona deeply appreciates the trust and support you are giving her.
