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).

Domitila's story

Domitila is a member of the Community Bank Minka. Domitila lives with her partner; she is 38 years old and has two children. Domitila sells food as a street vendor in a major street; additionally, she travels to various regional fairs where she buys cereals and cheeses that she sells in the markets of the city of Ayacucho. Domitila needs a loan of 600 soles which will be invested in buying rice and sugar. Domitila’s dream is to have her own capital.
