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 $800 helped to buy inventory (clothes in different styles and sizes) with the goal of offering new and varied products to her customers.


Lilliette Del Carmen's story

Lilliette is 28 years old. She is originally from Managua but lives in Estelí. She is the mother of two children. Lilliette sells clothes. She studied Business Administration. Lilliette started working at the age of 25. She decided to create her own business so that she could use the knowledge she gained at University. She has been in this business for three years and, through it, she supports herself and her children.

Lilliette requested this loan to buy inventory (clothes in different styles and sizes). Her aim is to offer new and varied products to her customers so that she can attract more customers and improve her sales as one of her goals is to open another clothes store.
