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).

Mykola's story

Mykola is married with grown-up children. He owns a small business selling clothing and shoes, as well as seeds and fertilizers, in seven small towns in Nova Kahovka area.

Mykola started this business five years ago. Today he's got many repeat clients. Mykola goes to each place once a week to bring his inventory. He also takes individual orders from people and brings them what they ask for.

Mykola is requesting a loan of 20,000 Grivnas to increase assorted inventory. He is hoping to make additional profit and use it to improve his family's living conditions.
