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).

She buys the charcoal from the producing center and sells it at a profit to her customers. Because the cost of each bag has gone up, she is unable to buy enough bags to supply all of her customers.
