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).

Eloa Reche's story

Eloa is 28 and has always loved fashion. She has worked in offices but always wanted to work with clothing and accessories for the female audience. She has worked in shops, but has the dream of opening her own.

For some time she has been selling door to door to friends and customers, and everyone relies on her good taste. She went to college for fashion and wants to put her knowledge into practice in her own establishment.

She rented a place on a busy avenue in the city she believes to be the right spot to make good sales. She has studied the region and believes that the public will be right for the things she wants to sell. She has goods like clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry, but needs R$7,000.00 to equip the store, create the facade, buy mannequins, hangers and a security system.
