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 $4,400 helped a member to open a grocery.


Power Group's story

Flora, who is in her late 30s, is married and has three children who go to school. She has been selling Irish potatoes at a wholesale price for four years. She works from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more Irish potatoes, curtains, floor tiles and bricks. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She wants a loan to open a grocery. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house.

She will share her loan with her group, Power, which has a total of 16 members, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Flora, Pascalia, Lucia, Odisca, Emmanuel*, Aazianast, Joseph, Shaban, Mwajuma, Alex, Atupele, Sebastian, Selestine, Rukia, Zalina, Suzana
