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).

Merab's story

Merab is a 53-year-old married man. He lives with his wife in a small village in the Mtskheta district. Merab works physically. He gets orders to repair houses and gets a small income. This is the only source of income for his family. As the income is not stable, Merab decided to start a poultry business. He purchased 200 chicks and wants money to build a shed for them. The Start Up program, which is a joint initiative between Kiva and Credo, enables him to get a loan of 1,500 GEL. As the chicks are raised, Merab will sell the hens and expand his farm. The Start Up loan will be a great help to his family.
