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 $650 helped to purchase seafood.


Esmelda María's story

Mrs. Esmelda B. sells seafood in the wholesale market in Managua. The business maintains her immediate family, comprised of her two small children who are of school age.

With the intention of acquiring seafood, she has come to apply for a loan at Ceprodel. This way she can continue to sell in her area, also making investments needed to grow.
