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 $550 helped for the purchase of more consumables for her food business selling corn, potatoes, etc.


Rosa's story

Rosa belongs to the "Vamos Juntos" communal bank. The bank is located in the Cusco district, which is in the province of Cusco and the department of Cusco.

Rosa is 55 years old and is married with 9 children. She alternates her daily activities between her business buying and selling corn and potatoes, which she then sells to the markets where her customers are located, and selling food, especially on the weekends.

She is asking for a loan for the purchase of more consumables for her food business selling corn, potatoes, etc.

She thanks those who are taking part in this dream by funding her loan, and she is committed to making her payments on schedule.
