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 $2,975 helped to build a greenhouse for seedlings and to connect the heating system.


Yuriy's story

Yuriy earns a living by growing vegetables in greenhouses. He used his previous Kiva loan to purchase plastic covering and seeds. As a result of his successful season, he was able to improve his living conditions by renovating his bathroom and installing a toilet in his house (prior to that, the toilet was outside.) He also bought a boiler to heat the greenhouses. This time, Yuriy needs supplementary financial resources to build one more greenhouse for seedlings and to connect the heating system. This will allow him to plant seeds and harvest the produce earlier, which will enable him to sell the vegetables at a more profitable price.
