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 $800 helped purchase freezer and tables for small restaurant.

Julia's story

Ms. Julia C. lives in her own house with her husband and children in the city of La Paz. She sells food in her small restaurant in a rented business space near her home. With her son’s help, the business is prosperous and satisfies customers.

The loan that she is requesting will be used to purchase a freezer and some tables to make her business look more pleasant and professional.

She has been a member of Impro since 2005, and she has satisfactorily repaid her previous loans, which qualifies her for a new one.
