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).

Manuela's story

Sra. Manuela is a member of the Communal Bank “Las Triunfadoras” (The Winners) which is in the District of Andahuaylillas, Quispicanchis Province, Department of Cusco.

She is 57 years old, married, and has three children. Manuel divides her time between her daily activities and her business of selling corn. She has land for growing the corn that she eventually sells as a street vendor in the District of Andahuaylillas. This business enables her to move her children forward. Manuela wants to improve and expand her business, so she is requesting a loan to invest in her corn crop as well as pay for the transport of her goods and the wages of the employees who help her with selling the corn.

She is happy with this loan and promises to complete her payments.
