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 $800 helped to purchase building materials for her business pace.

Asosaasaa's story

Asosaasaa is married with five children. She is very talented in sewing different types of styles, and she has been doing this business for a long time. Although she earned some money at the beginning, it was still not enough because there weren’t enough clients, plus she depended on these clients providing their own materials. When she received her first loan of ST$750, she bought her own materials and either sold the finished clothing at the flea markets or she provided for all her customers by her own money and they repaid her later. Asosaasaa is hoping to get another loan to help with the extension of the business by building a stable place to sell her sewing materials with very good service. She can also pay her kids' school fees with the money she gets from the business.
