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).

Norbert's story

Norbert is not married. He works at a plant BET "Avtomotiv" as a technician. Norbert is a fourth-year-student at a college and is having a hard time to get the entire sum - 7,000 hryvnia - to pay tuition for the year as the college requires. Norbert hopes that the obtained education will help him get a new job with a high income. Norbert is requesting a loan in the amount of 5,000 hryvnia for education (and he saved 2,000 hryvnia on his own).
