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 $325 helped to purchase assorted clothing for men and women as well as sandals.

Isabel Cristina's story

Isabel sells clothing and cosmetics for a living, a business she started in order to help with the household expenses. She used to work as a domestic employee. Since her three children are in school she is able to dedicate all her time to her sales. This has helped her to build her customer base. She sells her products on a cash and credit basis through catalogs.

Isabel hopes to sell more products and it is for this reason that with this loan she will buy: assorted clothing, pants, shirts, girl's dresses and sandals. Since she already has cosmetics, she will invest only in clothing to improve her sales, increase her income and be able to make her payments.
