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).

Cuc started this business to generate income and cover her expenses. She is requesting a loan to expand her business by buying more household items and many kinds of soft drinks to stock her store. She hopes that this will enable her to attract more customers and that she will be able to increase the turnover of her business.
