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 $975 helped to build a stable.


Pal's story

Pal wants to build a stable and he needs lenders’ help to achieve this. In the background you can see his little family house where there are five people residing: the couple and their children. They are very poor and they barely can make it.

Pal is very happy that he was finally given the opportunity to do something because up until now he was not eligible to apply for loans, first because his collateral was insignificant to what was requested for a loan, and secondly, no financial institutions served his area. About two months back, VFA expanded to a new area including 23 villages.

Agriculture/livestock has been the activity where his focus has been throughout most of the past ten years.
