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 $925 helped to expand the existing animal stable.


Marie's story

Marie is in her early fifties, is married and has five children. Her oldest child, a son, lived in Greece for a short period of time until recently when he joined his mother in the business which they both plan to expand. They all live in the north-eastern part of the country.

For the past 12 years, Marie has been selling dairy products and baby calves to locals and the dairy market. Throughout the years, she has experienced a growth in the business and in the clientele.

Marie now wants to expand the animal stable in hope that all the animals she currently has and those she plans to soon add would all fit nicely in it. This is why she is requesting a loan this time. Her previous three loans from the same institution, the VFA, have all been repaid in full.

Marie wants to deliver special thanks to all Kiva lenders for their potential support.
