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).

Luisa's story

Luisa is 30 years old and married with three children. She wants to start a small business making and selling rice and curry, snacks, drinks, donuts, german buns and cream buns in her community. To do this, she needs a loan to buy food ingredients and cooking equipment. In the future, Luisa hopes to earn more profit to improve her business to help her family and her kids' education. She joined SPBD in 2013 to gain access to financial services.
