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).

Lola's story

Lola is a woman with a wonderful spirit and beautiful thoughts. She is married and is raising smart and beautiful children. She loves to work, and is engaged in agriculture. She grows apricot trees. She begins her work day early in the morning. She currently lives with her daughter; her husband and son are migrant workers in the Russian Federation. She lives on the money that she receives from her husband. She wants to put a shed in front of her house, and can't afford to buy the slate, lumber, and etc. She is requesting a loan in the amount of 1000 US dollars. She awaits your kind assistance.
