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).

Patricia Pilar's story

Patricia is in a common law marriage and has a son who is in school. She lives in the home of her parents and her greatest wish is to build a house of her own. Patricia has a store where she sells groceries, vegetables, meats, and condiments that she prepares herself. Her business is open every day from 6am until 10pm. In addition, Patricia works at a transportation company as an administrator.

She is a member of the Communal Bank “Lirio” (Iris) and needs a loan of 2600 PEN to invest in the purchase of milk, sugar, rice, and oil.
