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).

Rezo's story

Rezo is a 48-year-old married man. He lives in a small village in the Sachkhere district with his wife and two children. His children go to school. Rezo is involved in agricultural activities. In particular, he has two cows. His wife milks the cows every day and produces cheese to sell. In addition, he has 1.25 hectares of land, where he grows maize and haricot. Rezo decided to start a new business and requested a loan. The start up loan, which is a joint initiative with Kiva and Credo, enables him to borrow 2500 Gel for purchasing two buffaloes. He will use them to transport wood from the forest to sell.
