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).

Janett Del Socorro's story

Janett del Socorro M. is a client of the Fundación León 2000. She is married, and has three children who depend on her. She is an efficient woman, and decided to work at this business because of the need to earn money for her family. She has been working at a grocery store for more than 35 years. Before, her mother was in charge of the business, and it was located inside her home. Now, after her mother's death, Janett decided to take over the business, which has lasted for generations. With this loan, she will be able to buy pop, juice, cigarettes, and candy. Her dream is to start a small restaurant to increase her income.
