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).

Indiana Del Carmen's story

Indiana Del Carmen works in the economic field of selling general merchandise. She started this way of life more than 12 years ago, as her family taught her to work hard long ago. She began because she had to raise her three young children, and in addition she has always liked to trade. Indiana has to get up early to prepare her bag of merchandise and start offering each of her products.

This loan is for the purchase of shoes, cosmetics, perfumes, shampoo, towels and sheets among other things.
