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).

Basilia Yamilet's story

Basilia is a hard-working, entrepreneurial woman. Through her sewing business and her business selling a variety of personal products, she has managed to establish herself in the field of commerce, providing excellent customer service and good-quality products. With her previous loan, Basilia increased her inventory and managed to fill her orders. She also plans to make some improvements to the infrastructure of her home.

With this new loan, Basilia will invest in buying raw materials such as fabrics, threads, buttons, zippers, elastic, cosmetics (face powder, eye shadow, eyebrow pencils and lipsticks), perfumes and other products that her customers are looking for during this holiday season. She is grateful for the constant support that she receives from the financial institution which allows her to develop her business and improve her standard of living.
