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).

Cándida Del Transito's story

Cándida del Transito S. D. L., 42, lives in San Salvador department with her husband and three minor children, who are students. She sells children and adult, male and female, clothes. She has had this business for 12 years. Cándida works hard to improve family finances and to help her husband support the family. She is asking for financing to invest in her business buying a larger amount of clothing of various colors and styles so that she will have more stock available for sale. Cándida hopes that this will lead to an increase in the number of her customers because it is very important to her to be able to contribute to her home and to see her children enjoying all that is needed to live.
