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 $825 helped to buy merchandise.


María Isabel's story

To organize her business well, to expand it and to turn it into a big store is the dream of María Isabel R. D., who has been selling merchandise from her premises for 10 years. At the same time, she also helps her husband make fried food which they distribute to cafeterias. This has enabled them to make good income for their family. Although her workdays are long, this entrepreneur works hard every single day to get ahead.

María Isabel needs a loan to buy merchandise and increase the variety of products she sells.
