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).

Jean's story

Jean, 31 years old, is married and has three children aged between two and nine years old. He sells local drinks from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. He currently employs four people to help him. Jean has requested a loan from Kiva lenders via Vision Finance Company in order to expand his business by buying more local drinks to sell. He plans to use any profits generated from this loan to satisfy his family's basic needs, to pay his children's school fees and to pay for medical insurance.
