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).

María Concepción's story

María Concepción M. D. A. is 56 years old and lives in San Marcos in the department of San Salvador. She lives with her two children, who are 17 and 19 years old.

María works very hard every day at her own sewing shop, which is located in her home. She has worked there for the last 10 years, and she has gained a lot of experience and many repeat customers. She makes curtains, bedspreads, tableclothes, and other items.

She is asking for this loan to purchase fabric, thread, needles, and other essential items for her sewing work. She hopes to improve her business and improve the finances of her family.
