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).

With the loan, she wants to purchase bundles of wheat flour, maize flour, rice and sugar and purchase a sewing machine. The previous loan had a positive impact on her business.
