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 $1,950 helped to renovate his café bar to change the carpets.


Kastriot's story

Kastriot, 25, is single and lives with his entire family. He is very ambitious and, although he is still a student, he was also able to open his own business last year. He owns a cafe/bar. At the beginning, business was very slow but now his business is growing and developing as he offers his customers different coffee and drinks.

Kastriot is requesting a loan in order to renovate his café/bar and change the carpets. This loan will help him to improve the ambiance and make the café more comfortable for his customers, improving his business and increasing his income. His goal is to expand his business and secure his future.

He hopes, in the near future, to get married. Kastriot wants to thank all Kiva lenders!
