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).

Eloisa's story

Eloisa is 54 years old. She and her husband work together selling offal to different businesses. They also work as itinerant vendors, going door to door. They have been in this business for more than ten years. They used to work from a stall opposite a slaughterhouse but, as their sales weren't very good, they moved the business to their home and started selling door to door. In addition to selling offal, they also started selling cassava.

In order to make a little extra income, Eloisa and her husband also sell soda, candies, baked goods and other products. They are requesting this loan to stock their business with these products. This loan will be a big help to them.

Eloisa dreams of having a vehicle. This would be a big help to her and her business.
