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).

Lidiya's story

Lidiya decided to take out this loan to buy women's jackets and coats because she did not have enough of her own financial means. Thanks to the previous loan Lidiya was able to expand the variety of the merchandise with women's sundresses and summer dresses and received an additional profit. She has improved her living conditions and bought an air conditioner.
