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 $975 helped purchase materials for housing maintenance.

Greta Doris's story

Greta belongs to the INDOAMERICA Communal Bank. She is 58 years old and lives in Pucallpa.

She has rented out rooms for several years. With her first loan of 300 nuevos soles, she purchased sweets to sell from her home to generate additional income. Nowadays she continues to sell sweets and her room rental business has improved.

She will invest this loan of 3000 nuevos soles in the purchase of materials that will improve the ambiance in her rooms.

“I’m a little unwell but I feel emotionally strong to overcome difficulties and move forward for the good of my family…all thanks to Manuela Ramos.”
