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).

Valasiolaga's story

Valasiologa B., 34, is single with no children. She has many years of experience in the store business. She sells to the public 7 days a week. She has 1 previous loan with SPBD. She expects her weekly net cash flow to be 500 Tala (~208 USD). SPBD loans are Valasiologo's only access to capital because she was never able to qualify for a loan with the traditional banks. The loan will be used to buy a box of mutton flaps, chicken legs, sausages, pots, teapots, a new oven and other materials used in her business. Her older sister is helping her run the business.
