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).

Agrepina's story

Agrepina is requesting a loan of $1,000 to improve her business. She will use the loan to buy some additional supplies to keep in her kiosk such as slippers, candies, sugar, coffee, detergent and other things to sell as well as flour to make fried bananas.

Agrepina started to open her kiosk in 2001 with her own working capital of $40. She is happy with the loan offered by Tuba Rai Metin for her to have more working capital to buy more goods.
