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).

Filomena's story

Filomena is taking a loan of $1,000 from TRM (Tuba Rai Metin). She is married and has one child. She has a shop to generate income for her family. She has been thinking how to run a big business, but she does not have enough working capital. She felt better when she applied for her first loan. She will buy some additional supplies to keep in her store such as second-hand clothes, second-hand shoes and second-hand bags. She is happy that TRM (Tuba Rai Metin) offers loan to poor people.
