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 $525 helped purchase new inventory.


Nataliya's story

Nataliya is an entrepreneur from Kahovka, a city on the wide Dnepr River that runs through the middle of Ukraine. Married with two children, Nataliya helps support her family with a small business selling cosmetics and personal care items. She has been in business for over eight years and currently makes about $200 in profit each month.



Nataliya has requested a loan of 2500 Ukrainian Griven (US$ 525) to purchase new inventory to sell. The type of business Nataliya has selling small items involves a fairly high product turnover rate. This loan will increase the amount of inventory she can buy and will help her continue to make a profit.
