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 $950 helped to buy and install a door and window to her one-room house.


Vergjinush's story

Vergjinush, an Egyptian lady in her early sixties is looking for a social loan to buy and install a window and door to her one-room house. She lives in the south-central area of Albania where the cold temperatures and snowy weather start by mid November. She has been suffering by living in an open room with the windows and doors covered by blankets and cardboards. Vergjinush has a 24-year-old son who works hard to provide for both of them.

Vergjinush is almost begging lenders to help her financially and wants them to know in advance that she will pay the loan because this is not her first loan, it’s the third and she has successfully paid the previous ones. Vergjinush also wants lenders to know that she would very much appreciate their compassion.
