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 $200 helped work capital.

Maura Cecilia's story

Maura has worked with the Fundación for a long time. Maura has four children, and they all work.

For over seven years she has had a mini-market. She started this business with her own funds. She previously sold clothes as a street vendor, but, unfortunately, she had a lot of losses. She decided to establish another business, the mini-market. Most of her customers are her own neighbors.

The loan is for work capital to buy basic grains, rice, oil, beans, and soft drinks. She always dreams of getting another business.
