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).

Katherine Elizabeth's story

Katherine is a 29-year-old woman who has many aspirations of prospering her business within the next few years. She sells clothing and shoes. Her story began when she was a young woman. She enjoys the retail business, so she decided to buy and sell clothing and shoes. Katherine works alone every day and does not face any difficulties. She is married and has two daughters.

Her greatest dreams are to have a car for transporting her merchandise and to provide for her daughters' education and the things they need. For this reason, her loan will be used to acquire clothing and shoes to sell.
