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).

Amanda's Maendeleo Group's story

Amanda is married and has a one-year-old child. In 2005, she went into business selling chickens, and she now works at her trade daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. She has applied for a loan to buy more chickens to raise and to sell to her customers. Amanda will divide her loan with the other three members of her group, Honorina, Meresia and Merry, all of whom run small businesses of their own.

In this group: Amanda, Honorina, Meresia, Merry
