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 $1,375 helped to repair his stable before the end of November.

Ded's story

Ded, who lives in the northern Albania with his family, is 52 years old and a father of three school-aged children, ranging in age from 15 to 19.

For the past 12 years, Ded has been raising livestock and has been selling milk and baby animals to locals. He’s been happy with the income he has been earning from it. Even though he has been the only one to bring money home, he has managed to feed and educate his children, something that he is proud of.

Ded wants to repair his stable, and this is why he is requesting a loan that is the first one for him. Kindly note that winter has started already in the region, and he has been worried about his animals sleeping in bad conditions.
