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 $800 helped working capital to expand his sales.


James's story

Mr. James D. is a serious and business-minded young man seeking a loan of $800.00 from Kiva to help him expand his operations. The demand for the goods he sells (soaps, biscuits, tins of milk, fish etc.) in his locality is very high and he wants to take advantage of this opportunity and make the most out of it. He is very hardworking and can pay back the loan. Thanks to KSF, he can now manage loans effectively and knows how to keep simple records.
