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 $275 helped to purchase more mineral water and soft drinks to improve her business.


Theresa's story

Theresa, 42, resides with her husband and four children in Sinkor. Her children are between the ages of 3 and 17; three of her children are not in school. She would like to give the best education to her children, but due to a lack of financial support, only one of the children is attending school.

For the past ten years, she has been selling soft drinks and mineral water in the community. Because her soft drinks and mineral water are always cool, she makes profit when she sells. With the profit, she buys more goods and repays her loan. She is requesting this loan to purchase more mineral water and soft drinks to improve her business. Her plan is to educate her children.
