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).

Odilie's story

Odilie is 29 years old, sells general merchandise, and has had this business for more than four years, but it’s been difficult to support her two minor children. Her husband helps her carry the products she sells.

This business is very profitable for her and the enthusiasm she offers her customers is very important. She will use the money from this loan to buy pants, shirts, skirts, sheets, and cosmetics, among other things. This way she can continue to offer a large variety of items.
