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 $950 helped to buy bags of charcoal.


Tity's story

This is 42 year old Tity. She is married and has 4 children ages 20,18, 7 and 3 years old. In 2008 Tity established her charcoal business. She began her business because she wants to assist her husband in taking care of the home.

Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,800,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of SLL 4,000,000. She needs this new loan in order to buy bags of charcoal. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 300,000. In the future, Tity plans to educate her children up to university level. She thanks you for your support.
