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).

Madina's Group's story

Madina T. has a small home-restaurant business. Madina started her business last year after her husband died. She has four children that she is looking after. The two who are at home helped her start her restaurant and the others who are in school helped over the holidays when they were at home. Her restaurant has enjoyed great success so far because she sells her food out of her house and many people in her community know her very well, so she attracts many customers. She is requesting a loan to stock some supplies for her restaurant. She will buy things like potatoes, flour, sugar, salt, and other things she can get in bulk. Madina hopes that someday she will be able to build a standalone restaurant.
