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 $675 helped to buy merchandise to sell.

Susana's story

Señora Susana has sold new and used clothing in different parts of the city for more than eight years.

Now her business needs more merchandise such as shoes, clothing for men, women, and children, and accessories for babies, but she doesn't have the money necessary to invest in her business, and she doesn't want to lose the income that she has for herself and her daughter. Her daughter is studying at the university.

She is applying for your help with this loan so that she can buy the merchandise and thus have more sales and more income from her business.

She will pay back the loan with the earnings that she will have from her business after she invests in the merchandise that she is going to buy.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry
