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 $2,425 helped to buy a dairy cow with a calf.


Petro's story

Petro is seeking your financial help to buy a dairy cow and a calf.

Petro is 37 and married, and has two children, 6 and 4. In addition to this, he has to look after his brother, who was born paralyzed.

They live in a village with beautiful scenery inside a national park; nice restaurants are built along the Shkumbini River and the national road not far from their village.

Fifteen years ago, Petro chose to pursue livestock as the only means of income. Since then, he has been selling raw milk to a nearby dairy farm. Here is what he stated during the interview: “I find it easy and manageable (to do) this type of activity while I look after my brother.”
