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).

Amparo Del Socorro's story

Señora Amparo has a business selling food. She will use this loan to invest in her business and to increase her working capital so she can have a better income for her family. She has had 3 loans with Ceprodel, and with them, she has improved her quality of life and her business. She is the mother of 4 children, 2 of whom are of school age and still depend on her. Her business is located in the town of Nindirí, and she works there from Monday through Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays, she sells food in her home to be able to take good care of her children, whom she loves very much.
