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).

Dior's story

Dior is a brave woman who is married and the mother of a family. She is 37 years old and sells fabrics and bags of shoes. She needs this loan in order to increase her stock of merchandise. Dior begins her day at 8am and works until 8pm. She helps her husband with the daily expenses and the schooling costs of their children. She hopes in the future to have her own shop to be able to increase her revenues and to improve the living conditions for her family.
