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).

Vera's story

Vera lives and works in the town of Zaporozhye. She has been selling children’s clothing at one of the local markets since 1996. Vera has her own sales stand. Vera needs the sum of 5,000 UAH in order to stock up on children’s clothing to resell during the winter season: children’s pants, suits, hats, and T-shirts. By stocking up on higher-quality goods, Vera will be able to expand her business and compete successfully with other vendors specializing in the same type of merchandise.
