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).

Violet's story

Violet is 56 years old and a single mother. She is a tailor and works in the city outskirts. She works 7 days a week, and she serves retail customers. She has been able to build small rentals out of the business to sustain her family.

This is her eighth loan which she will use to buy materials for sewing. One of the challenges she faces is that some customers, at times, are not able to make payments on time. Violet is very hard working and her dream is to flourish in this business.
