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).

Medza's Group's story

Medza is a fifty-five-year-old mother of six children and a widow. She sells locally-brewed beer and does casual labor to earn money to support her children. She says she lacks the capital to make large quantities of the brew, and sometimes her supply runs out, so she misses out on potential income.

Medza says, "I want to plant trees and get money like my other villagers who have joined KOMAZA." She plans to use the profits from her tree farm to educate her children, three of whom are still in school, and to invest in other businesses.
