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 $425 helped to pay education fees at a vocational school.


Ngadiyem's story

Ngadiyem lives in a village which is parched and barren. She works as an ordinary laborer. She has not enough income for her family's daily living expenses, so she finds it very difficult to pay for the additional cost of education for her three children. Ngadiyem wants all her children to go to school and finish--especially Solehudin, as at this time he enters his final year in vocational school. Ngadiyem is trying to participate in the student loan program of Kiva, so Solehudin can finish school.

In the picture, Ngadiyem appears with Solehudin, her son.

Solehudin is the first child of Ngadiyem. He hopes to finish school and quickly find work as a computer technician in order to help ease the burden on his family and help his younger siblings to continue their education.
