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).

A loan of $500 helped to buy milk and replacement parts for her grinding mill.

Nely Argentina's story

Nely is 49 years old and no longer has children who depend on her. She lives with her daughter in the eastern part of the country. Nely sells milk and curd, and also has a domestic grinding mill with which she grinds corn, rice, beans, etc.

For more than 5 years, Nely has been dedicated to these income generating activities which have permitted her to cover household expenses. Now, Nely is requesting help with the purchase of milk and replacement parts for repairing her grinding mill. This will make it possible to offer her customers better service.

Nely hopes this investment will be of much help, enabling her to cover family expenses and other financial commitments. Her dream is to improve her quality of life.
