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 $425 helped working capital.

Noemi's story

Noemí S. Gutiérrez is 32 and married. She has two children who are not yet school age. Noemí has a mini market, which is located in her house. She has had this business for over three years. She started this business with a small amount of clothes. Nevertheless, it was her mother who taught her that a mini market would be much more profitable. This would suit her because she would be taking care of her children.

The loan she is asking for is for working capital to buy basic grains, sweets, bread, and natural soft drinks.

Her dream is to give her children the necessary education.
