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).

Francisca's story

Francisca O. E. is a woman who is well known for her gift of providing good customer service. She has been raising pigs for three years. She would like to improve her family income, growing her business. For this reason, she needs a loan for 600,000 colones to buy more pigs and better feed. She is a member of the 'Empresa de Crédito Comunal Santa Fe' (Santa Fe Community Credit Company), one of the 100 member organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica.
