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 $275 helped to cover medical expenses.

Josefina's story

Josefina is requesting her first loan with us because a family member is seriously ill and she needs the money to cover the medical expenses that are being created. She is requesting a small amount because at the moment she is not working as she is dedicating herself to looking after the family member. For this reason, her husband will be responsible for repaying the loan because he would like to support his wife in this difficult situation and provide some peace so that the family member can recover.
