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 $950 helped to purchase livestock.

Sulpicia's story

Sulpicia is a member of the communal bank "Los Claveles". She is 57 years old, married, and she has three children.

Sulpicia sells heart kebabs, haggis, and she also sells livestock.

The loan which she requests will be invested in the purchase of cattle. She started this business 33 years ago and through it she sent her children and husband to school. She appreciates Finca Peru (Kiva Field Partner) for the easy loan process and for the training they receive on practicing sound values to improve their family and their business. She has had personal difficulties following her mother's stroke. She is now keeping her orphaned nieces and nephews in school and her dream is for them to earn a career.
