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 $3,000 helped to pay for rose seeds and to renovate her greenhouse.

Susanna's story

Susanna is from Masis. She lives with her husband and 33-year-old son. The whole family is engaged in agriculture, including beekeeping. They currently keep 60 colonies of bees, get high quality honey and sell it locally. Due to their hard work, the farm provides them with sufficient income for covering basic needs.

Susanna now asks for this loan of 3,000 USD to enlarge her agribusiness. She plans to renovate the greenhouse and purchase rose seeds for cultivation. As this is Susanna's first loan, it has been approved within the framework of the new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF. The first-chance loan program provides loans to people who didn’t have access to credit products in the past because they have no credit history.
