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).

Betty's story

Betty is 35 years old and lives in Logan Town. She is single and has three children between the ages of 7 and 20. Three of them are attending school and live at home. Betty has been operating a provisions shop for the past five years now. She sells soap, toothpaste, rice, oil, tissue and batteries amongst other things. She has only a small amount of capital to operate her business, and she requested a loan to purchase more rice, oil, soap, tissue, batteries and toothpaste for her business. She plans to build a house for her children and educate them.
