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).

Elena's story

Elena is a very charming woman who lives in a small flat in Getahovit village with her husband, son, and mother-in-law. She has a farm that she and her husband have enriched and enlarged through their hard work. Elena keeps pigs, chickens, and cows on the farm and also cultivates corn, greens, and different fruits. The harvest is sold locally to provide income for the family.

Elena is requesting this loan to purchase 7 calves and enlarge her farm. The loan is very important for her as she plans to get involved in dairy production. Elena hopes that Kiva lenders will help her to expand her agricultural business and improve her living conditions.
