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).

Kertha Bakti Group's story

The Kertha Bakti group is made up of 15 women who are neighbors in the same village in Melaya, West Bali. The group is seeking a loan of 22,500,000 Rupiah (IDR), and each member will receive 1,500,000 IDR. The group was formed out of these women's common interest in raising pigs to supplement family income, and out of their interest in receiving education on best practices for raising pigs. This is their fourth loan with MUK.

Ni Luh is the head of the Kertha Bakti group. She is married and has three children. Her younger son is a toddler and her older son is in school. Her husband earns money as a farmer, but Ni Luh would like to help support her family with her pig raising business. She plans to sell the piglets after five months for others to fatten. With the increase in household income, she hopes to be able to pay school fees.
