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 $900 helped to purchase construction materials to make improvements on her home.


Ivania Vaneska's story

Ivania works as a cashier at a private company. She has been improving her house, which is half concrete and half wood, which over the years the wood has been deteriorating. She has a daughter and relies on the support of her husband who works as a collections agent. This is her second cycle with Afodenic. With her first loan, she was able to finish her bathroom which was a huge improvement. Nowadays, with this new loan, she will begin to construct starting from the base of the concrete half of her home in order to have more space. She will purchase construction materials, such as blocks, sand, cement, iron, wires, and a buttress to start her project.
