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).

Judith's story

Judith is 32 years old, married, and has two children. She has a grocery store in her home. Judith previously worked on a vegetable farm, but with her savings she was able to establish her own business. Thanks to everything that FINCA Peru has taught her and the training she has received, Judith has been able to grow her business.


Now her goal is to have a larger store. The loan she is receiving will be used to buy rice, milk, oil, and sugar.
