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 $2,075 helped to purchase new tools for his locksmith work.


Milutin's story

Milutin is 46 years old and married with two children. He is living in one of the minority communities in Kosovo with his wife and their children, who are 14 and 18 years old; both children are attending school. Based on tradition, he has been working in a locksmith shop, which he started working at when he was very young. He recognized that this type of business is profitable, and has been staying in the field all of these years. He serves all of the people in the community regardless of ethnicity or nationality.

Because he has been working for a long time, his tools have become old, broken and outdated, so he is requesting a loan to purchase new tools for his work. The loan will help him to increase his income as the new tools will help him to be more efficient and effective, and he is hoping in the near future to expand his business so that he can add more income and offer his children a better education. He appreciates this help and wants to thank all of the lenders!
