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).

Edith's story

Edith is 41 years old. She is married and blessed with two children aged 12 and 8. Both her children attend school. She sells undergarments, soaps and many other assortments of small retail products. She has been in the business for more than two years and she sees progress and the future is bright for her business. She has a vision selling the products in large scale in the future. She found out about Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy toilet detergents, soaps, sweets and other retail goods. The major challenge for her business is competition and the lack of funding. The extra income from the business will improve her living standard. She will also be able to educate her children.
