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).

Eugenia's story

Eugenia is a member of the “Firmeza” communal bank. She’s 58 years old, the mother of five children, and has been a member of FINCA Peru for three years.


She has a small grocery store and is very grateful because you’ve helped her during her most difficult times and she’s learned a lot about her personal life and her business. Thing are going well for her because of the training she gets. She will invest the money from this loan in groceries that she needs [for her business] and will also buy a pig. Her greatest desire is to be able to build a house.
