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 $350 helped to buy small chickens.


Subdra's story

Subdra is 45 years old. She is married and has two children, aged 20 and 19.

Many years ago, Subdra established her poultry farming business. Working 7 days a week and 4 hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid six loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent loan to buy small chickens for her business.

In the future, Subdra plans to uplift the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support.

In the Kathmandu Valley, raising poultry for eggs and meat is a very profitable business. Kiva loans are used to purchase chicks, food, and necessary medicine to keep the chickens healthy. Once matured, the chickens are sold at small butcher shops or in the many open air markets throughout the valley.
