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 $2,000 helped to purchase DVD discs.


Tolib's story

Tolib is 49 years old, married and has two children. He sells disks and DVD players at a market and has seven years of market-work experience. He requested his first loan from our organization in 2008. Tolib used that loan to purchase an inventory of DVD players. He improved his family situation by obtaining loans one after another. Tolib is requesting this new loan to purchase DVD disks.
