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).

Reina Isabel's story

Reina is employed and sells fast food such as hamburgers, Mexican-style sandwiches, and Salvadoran chicken sandwiches. She lives with her husband and children, all of whom work at home. Reina started her business with the help of one of her daughters. They work in the afternoons at her home.


At the moment, she needs to buy ingredients for selling her food, specifically regular bread, buns for Mexican-style sandwiches and hamburgers, chicken, ham, mortadella, oil, condiments, and sodas. This investment will be advantageous for her and her business because she will have what she needs to meet the demand.


Her aspiration is to have a stable microenterprise. With the help of these loans, Reina will be able to develop her business and proviD. her family everything they need.
