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).

Norma Luz's story

Norma Luz O. D. S. lives with her husband and two daughters in the Soyapango neighborhood of San Salvador. She operates a business making prints for notebooks. Norma has lots of customers in San Salvador which she sells all the prints that she makes and sometimes she can't keep up with customer demand. That's why she's applying for a new loan. She wants to buy enough of the basic materials she needs to make the prints. She needs to make more so that she has enough to meet customer demand. It should be mentioned that Norma has received loans before and she has always been punctual in repaying them.
