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).

Amelia's story

Amelia is taking a loan of $1,200.00 USD to improve her business. She runs a kiosk that helps her generate income for her family. She will use the loan to buy stock to keep in her store such as slippers, cigarettes, soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Sprite, Sagiko and Fanta) and biscuits. She opened her kiosk in 2004 with her own working capital of $70.00. She is a hard working woman and she hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
