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).

Manana's story

Manana is 39 years old and is from a small village of Akhmeta district. She lives with her daughter and brother. Her brother is an artisan and works locally and gets a monthly income. Manana is involved in an agricultural business. In particular, she has eight piglets and is going to raise them and sell them in the winter period at a good price. In addition, Manana owns a vineyard and produces wine and vodka, which is sold locally in an open market.

Manana works hard and does her best for the family. She wants to make some improvements and repairs to her old house, but the amount of money she has isn’t enough, so she is requesting a loan to cover the costs of repairing the house such as changing windows, painting, etc. Taking this loan will create for Manana and her family suitable home conditions and enable them to enjoy living in their house.
