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 $700 helped to buy pigs.


Manana's story

Manana is a 63-year-old, pensioned woman from the village of Tskarostavi. She lives with her husband and sister. The family's significant source of income is from monthly assistance. They don't have any other activity, except having some chickens.

Manana finds it hard to live with the financial difficulties and she has a great desire to generate income from agricultural activity. Most people get income from this activity in this area and Manana thinks it will be lucrative for her, too.

With the requested money, she will purchase pigs, breed them, and after they grow, she will sell them at a good price. It will somehow improve the family's living conditions and Manana will more easily meet the daily costs. She will be grateful for the help, allowing her to do her own bit for the family's welfare.

Manana awaits your support.
