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 improve a taro chips business.


Tiloga's story

Tiloga S., 29, is married with 3 children. She has 4 years of experience selling taro chips. She sells to the villagers and school children 5 days per week. Her loan will be used to improve her taro plantation and chip business and to improve her house.

Tiloga has had 3 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 500 Tala (about $US 208). SPBD loans are Tiloga’s only access to capital because she has not been able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. She is very pleased with the SPBD programme and is a long-time loyal member.
