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 $600 helped to buy more clothes and shoes for sale.


Samuel's story

Samuel used his previous loan amount to buy more clothes for sale, and it has been profitable.

This being his second loan, he plans to use the amount to add more stock of clothes, especially ladies dresses for sale. He will also add more stock of shoes.

Samuel hopes to grow his business and make more income and thus be able to provide good education for his children. He also hopes to build a house for his family.
