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 $400 helped to buy more merchandise.

Rose Bernadette's story

Rose is a woman of 32, mother of two children aged four and two. For seven years, she has been running a little bar in town where she sells healthful drinks. She has acquired enough experience over these years to be able to attract a sizable clientele but her stock of merchandise does not permit her to satisfy her customers. She is thus asking for this loan to be able to buy more cases of drinks and grow her stock of merchandise (healthful drinks). The profit that this loan will bring in will be in part invested in her business with the rest going into opening a new venue and for the needs of her children.
