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).

Fanny Yaneth's story

Fanny is a 20 year-old young woman who sells pupusas [thick corn tortillas filled with a variety of ingredients] and soft drinks. She lives with her husband, her two year-old daughter, and her in-laws. Her business was born thanks to the unconditional support of her mother-in-law, and she makes her sales during the afternoons. She is requesting a loan to buy ingredients that she will use in the preparation of her pupusas, such as soft cheese, ground pork meat, chicken, and seasonings. This investment will help her to increase her sales since she will make more pupsas, therefore strengthening the business. She dreams of having a large eatery that will bring in greater profits, in order to cover household expenses and improve her current situation.
