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).

Alina's story

Alina is applying for a loan of $1,000 to improve her business. She is running a business in front of her house by doing motorcycle services.

Alina is making a good income from the motorcycle services. She wants to buy more stock with the loan and pay for the mechanic who works for her.

Alina is living in a town near the main road, so many people come to fix their motorcycles. She opened her business in 2010 with her own working capital.
