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).

Lucia's story

Lucia is 28 years old and she is married. She is taking a loan from Tuba Rai Metin to improve her business.

She has a kiosk in front of her house and is making a good income from it. She opened her kiosk 1 year ago with her own working capital of $ 300.

She is happy with TRM, who offered her a loan and she will continue to apply for loans after she finishes this one.

She will use the loan to buy some additional supplies to keep in her store, such as noodles, oil, slippers, candles, sugar, coffee and rice.
