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 $3,000 helped to expand his business.


Sultonkul's story

Sultonkul is married and a loving father of three children. He has been selling sweets and cakes for the last 12 years at the local market. His spouse helps him and she is very knowledgeable in the techniques of making sweets of different varieties. Since they have such a large family the sweets business is not enough and Sultonkul supplements the family's income using his metal working business. He has learned the metal working trade from his father. Sultonkul is requesting this loan to expand his business and would like to thank in advance for your help and support.
