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 pay for her course to get qualified.

Katya Guisell's story

Katya Guisell is 22 years of age, and is studying a business administration course. She started working when she was 18, and has worked to be able to pay for her education. She has requested this loan to pay for her course to get qualified, and currently works in the cash and collections department of a private hospital.

If she were unable to take out a loan, Katya Guissell would have to wait longer to get the money together to pay for her course. She is interested in her profession, as it will help her to meet her goals. This would be a dream come true for her and her family, and she would become a better professional and share with others the knowledge she obtained from university. She will also motivate other people to take this development initiative.
