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 $1,000 helped investment in the purchase of goods and in the purchase of knives to cut meat.

Martina Martha's story

She is an old client, and is now working for the sixth time with our institution. Over the course of her loans, she has never presented any problems, and she has proved herself to be a hard working woman with a desire to succeed. Sra. Martha has a stable home, as she lives with her two daughters. This loan will be used for the purchase of meat and knives that will be used daily in her butcher shop that she owns in the Yungas Market in the city center.
