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).

Alexander's story

Alexander is an entrepreneur from the Kamenka-Dneprovskaya town. He is involved in growing early vegetables in greenhouses on his plot of land. He has three large greenhouses and is currently building another one. Hard work and sociability are his main business qualities that help him to develop his business. Alexander has been involved in this business for only two years, but has big plans. He wants to build six greenhouses in the next several years and then build himself a house. Alexander is requesting a loan in the sum of 20,000 hryvnia to build an additional greenhouse and install heating.
