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).

Progress Sisters Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 34-year-old Nelia from Mutare. Nelia belongs to Progress Sisters Group. She is married with four children, two of whom are attending school.

Nelia runs a retail business which sells clothes (babywear, ladies’ suits) and footwear. The business has been in operation for three years. She says the main challenge being faced is stiff competition on the market.

Nelia has requested a loan of $600 to buy clothes and footwear for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve the general welfare of her family. In the future, Nelia plans to own a boutique shop in town.

Nelia is holding her own baby, and she is a member of Progress group.

In this group: Pharisee, Orippa, Annie, Nelia
