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).

For this reason she is requesting a loan of ₡603 000 to purchase more merchandise to sell.

She is a member of the Canalete Communal Bank, one of EDESA's 100 partner organizations in Costa Rica.
