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).

Alicia's story

Alicia Terán is married to Erasto Hipólito. She has had a previous loan with us to pay for personal expenses and her repayments were always on time. Now, they are requesting a new loan to do some home improvements since they are building walls around their house to increase security and protection for their family.
