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 $675 helped to purchase ingredients to make baked goods for sale.


Faimafili's story

Faimafili is 25 and married with three children. She owns and operates a business baking and selling a variety of baked goods in the local community. She has two years of experience in this business.

Faimafili needs a loan of 1500 WST to purchase additional ingredients. She plans to use the profit from her sales (an estimated 350 WST per week) to improve and expand her business.

In 2011, Faimafili joined SPBD to gain access to financial services, and this is her second loan with the company. Most of SPBD's clients are unable to borrow from commercial banks because they lack collateral.
