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 $875 helped to purchase merchandise; to expand her stock of clothing.


Nancy's story

Nancy is an experienced client. Her record demonstrates that she is a responsible client and her attitude says the same. Nancy has a business selling used clothing. She is a traveling saleswoman, so she sells at stalls in different markets of the city of La Paz. She is a very hard-working person, and she goes out every day to make her sales. Her husband is Roberto Encinas, a radio taxi driver. Nancy and her husband work together to give their children a better life. They have two children who are still young. The loan will be used to purchase merchandise; Nancy has some stock, but she wants to expand her variety.
