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 $7,500 helped to obtain more inventory for his online book resale business and broken electronics repair service.

Erman's story

Erman is the owner of West Net Online LLC, an online retailer and re-seller. The business has been operating for over 11 months and mostly focuses on the online re-sale of books. The books can be easily purchased online and are shipped to the buyer.

Additionally, Erman, taking advantage of his strong knowledge and skills with electronics, recently started to repair and recycle phones, iPads and other electronics as an added service. This new idea has been very successful for his business. He buys broken electronics and refurbishes them for resale on the online market.

Since the biggest challenge for starting the business has been the lack of cash flow, Erman is requesting a loan that would help him buy new inventory so he can increase his product selection and grow his business. Erman’s dream is to become a successful CEO and to be able to place his company in the Inc. 500 List of Fastest Growing Companies.
