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).

Teresa Del Carmen's story

Teresa del Carmen lives with her two children. She has a store in her house where she sells basic necessity products like rice, beans, and milk, among others. She has a lot of customers because her products are top quality and well priced. Additionally, her service is excellent. Teresa is an entrepreneurial woman with many goals to get ahead. She wants to see her business grow and always finds herself ahead of the competition. She thinks that everyone has the capacity to excel and achieve success. It is due to this that she decided to request from INTEGRAL a loan that allows her to buy basic grains, candies, instant products, sausages, etc. Teresa del Carmen hopes that, in this way, she will be able to give her family a better quality of life.
