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 $3,850 helped to purchase and install a railing to enclose the outdoor play area and an air conditioner for the indoor play area and nap room.

Aliya's story

Aliya manages a daycare for five children. Over the last several years, her daycare has gained an excellent reputation and is in high demand. It is always full well before the school year begins.

Aliya needs to make changes to the daycare and is preparing for expansion in the future. One area where the children play is on a large balcony and she needs to replace the railing for safety reasons. In addition, she needs to add an air conditioner for the indoor play area and nap room.

Aliya loves caring for young children and provides a warm, loving environment. Aliya wants to expand her business, hire an assistant and take on ten kids rather than just five. She sees her daycare meeting the needs of the area in the future, as opposed to having to turn away young children because there is no room.
