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).

Maculada's story

Maculada is 39 years old and married. She has seven children; six of them are in school.

She is now applying for a loan from TRM (Tuba Rai Metin). She will use the loan to buy some additional supplies/stock to keep in her kiosk and resell.

Maculada is living in a town which is about 1 Km from the city. Beside running a kiosk, she also buys firewood from a place where people sell firewood at a very low price.

In the future, she wants to make her business bigger.
