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).

Elisapeta's story

Elisapeta N., 48, is married with six children. A very energetic mother working hard to support her family, she is supporting her husband, children and as well as her husband's parents. She has many years of experience in the Plantation/ Samoan Bread business. She sells to the general public/villages 3 days per week. She has 4 previous loans with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 650 Tala (~$270 USD). SPBD loans are Elisapeta’s only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. Part of her loan will be used for her son's school fees.
