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).

Ana Simone Fiso's Group's story

This group includes nine women from Vaitoomuli. They are honest women who work hard to start up their businesses. Some of them farm, some of them fish, and others sell vegetables in the village and at a larger market. They earn more than $100 tala (US $41) in profit every week. They are looking for their next loan to expand the businesses and for home improvement. They are aware of SPBD rules and regulations and they are strict in enforcing them in their group.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Ana, Eseta, Kalala, Koki, Luatasi, Pamata, Ruta, Sailiomanu, Vaisola
