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).

Haruna's story

Haruna, 41 years old, operates a poultry farm; He began this business because he wanted to raise money to meet basic needs for his family. He has four children and all of them attend school. His main challenges include bad debtors, high price fluctuations and competition in his village. He would like to expand his business to get more income to support his children and meet their school fee requirements. In the picture is Haruna and his wife in the poultry house. (She signed the waiver form.)
