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).

A loan of $950 helped to do renovations in the rooms where they live.


Sadbere's story

Sadbere is 30 years old and living in a Roma community, with her husband and four young children. She is a housewife, spending her time taking care of the household needs and their children, while her husband makes a living by carrying and transporting goods for others, for a small amount of money. Her husband's job is the family’s main source of income, but he does not earn enough to provide for all of the needs of his family.

Currently, they live in a house which is in need of renovation. They live in a very small and old house which is in very poor condition. Sadbere is requesting a loan in order to do some renovations in the rooms where they live. This loan will help Sadbere and her family to improve their living conditions, keep utility costs down, and contribute to the general health and comfort of her family.

Her goal is to renovate her house and she hopes to offer a better life to her family. Sadbere and her husband want to thank all Kiva lenders!
