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 $2,525 helped buy seeds, fertilizer and household goods for the store.


Tatyana's story

Tatyana uses loans regularly and takes them often, as she always needs funds to purchase new goods. This time, Tatyana is requesting a loan to purchase seeds, fertilizers and household goods for the store. Her previous loan was used for the same purpose- to increase her range of products and purchase new seeds and fertilizer.Tatyana constantly replenishes her goods; bringing new things to the store is a lot of work. In the summer, she took a vacation for two weeks to go to the sea and rest.
