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 $600 helped to buy poultry feed and baby chicks.


Connie's story

Connie is a 51year old widow and mother of two children. She operates a poultry farm that has been struggling because she has constantly had to withdraw all the profits and sometimes the capital to pay tuition for her children. Connie, who lives on the outskirts of the city, is also challenged by the high cost of poultry feed. Unfortunately, the price of chicken does not increase much. With this loan, she hopes that the status of her business will change and improve her income levels. She is a hard working woman.
