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).

Amalia Ivoon's story

Amalia, recently married, is a professional woman who is immersed in business, following the footsteps of her mom (who is still alive). For six years, Amalia has managed a restaurant after her mom started it several years earlier. As a visionary woman, she visited Ceprodel to request financing, which she will use to buy rafters, zinc, iron, cement, sand, and to pay for labor costs. This will allow her to expand her restaurant and meet the current demand by providing her customers with the better conditions. This will increase her level of sales and result in better living conditions for her family.
