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 $325 helped to buy pigs.

Julia Maria's story

Julia has been a Fundación client for a long time. She is very happy with her life’s work which is butchering pigs. She has been in this business for over 17 years. She has made it succeed through much effort and sacrifice. She is a person with the determination to get ahead because she fights for the two minor children in her care.

The purpose of the loan is to buy raw materials like pigs because they are being offered at good prices and she doesn’t want to miss out on the opportunity.
