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).

Asai's story

Asai A. K., 46, is married with 6 children. She has 5 years of experience in the Food Stall business. She sells to the general public and villagers 5 days per week. Her husband and children help with the business. Asai expects her weekly net cash flow to be 150 Tala (about US $62).

Asai has had 6 previous loans with SPBD. These loans are her only access to capital because she has not been able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Part of this loan will be used for the children's education and to pay for electricity and water.
