Hoivah is a mother of three in Saikul, India, who weaves traditional shawls. Her Kiva loan has given her financial flexibility and she no longer struggles to pay her children’s school fees on time. “Thank you so much, Kiva!” she says, for helping her give her son the best education possible.

Solar power lights up communities in India. Kiva loans are used to subsidize the upfront costs of solar panels, a sustainable and environmentally-friendly alternative to fossil fuels.

Janette is a 20-year-old woman living in Samoa who used a loan funded on Kiva to start a small business selling chicken buns. This small boost allowed her to purchase flour, a frying pan, cooking oil, and a new oven – she’s using the profits from her business to better support herself and her family.

Sharif's life was headed in a direction he didn't like, so he cleaned up his act - and his diet - with juice. Now his affordable, made-to-order juice is available all over Pittsburgh.
A portion of the loan helped a member Safi Juice to develop a strong marketing plan and gain working capital.

With a lending hand from Kiva, Najah obtained a loan from FATEN to purchase more sheep for her sheep-raising business. With additional assets she will be able to provide more meat and milk for the local traders around Jericho.

Childhood obesity is a growing problem and Arizona ranks among the worst. Randy dreams of having a youth team at his new boxing gym in Tuscon, AZ and to promote fitness in his community.
A loan of $2,500 helps build a gym people of all ages can enjoy, more than just to lose weight!

I note that meal is in what looks like an expanded polystyrene box. Would have been cheaper to use tin or porcelain plates and much better ecologically.  No?

Empower people around the world with a $25 loan
Introduction
We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

We envision a world where all people - even in the most remote areas of the globe - hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others.

We believe providing safe, affordable access to capital to those in need helps people create better lives for themselves and their families.
