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 $1,250 helped to offer new kinds of perfumes for sale in his kiosque.

Vitalyi's story

Vitalyi has been successful in investing his two previous Kiva loans into expansion of his business. He was very happy with the timely acquisition of these funds, which he put to good use. With his loans, Vitalyi was able to increase his profits by 1000 hryvnia. He also began repairs and renovations of his home's interior.

Vitalyi would like to use a new Kiva loan of 10000 hryvnia to purchase new kinds of perfumes for subsequent resale. During the summer season, distinct, lighter fragrances are in demand, and Vitalyi would like to offer these in his kiosque in order to cater to the tastes of his customers. Currently, he is also considering the possibility of opening another retail location and hiring an employee, thereby expanding his business.
