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 $325 helped to pay for reconstruction of his shop and to purchase spare parts like tyres, tubes, oil, etc.

Madhab's story

Madhab is a 44-year-old differently able person living with his wife and two children in a small village of Odisha, India. He started a motorcycle repair center 12 years ago to manage his family. Before his own repairing shop he worked in a motorcycle repairing shop as a daily labourer.

He started his own repairing center in a very small size. Whatever he earns from this activity is used for consumption purposes and it's not sufficient for his family to live happily and afford all the necessities of life.

Now he wants to expand his business and for that he needs financial support. To repair motorcycle,s he goes very frequently to the market to purchase the spare part of the cycle. Because of lack of finance, he is not able to purchase the spare parts in bulk amounts, so he has requested a loan amount of 20,000 INR to reconstruct his shop and purchase spare parts like tyres,tubes, oil, etc.
