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).

Tala's story

Tala is a 58 year old seamstress, married with 4 kids, 2 working in American Samoa for a fishing company, one locally employed at Aggie Grey Hotel and one finishing school next year. Tala’s business has provided so much support in her family that she was able to finance her children’s schooling. Tala will no longer be able to tailor, due to her eye sight. She aims to develop their family plantation because she believes that she’s got the strength together with the husband to work towards achieving and getting good income.
