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 $1,000 helped to buy three hogs.


Margarita Candelaria's story

Margarita is employed as a teacher and runs a hog farm from her home. She lives with her family: her husband and three children. She started her business with the desire to have another source of income on top of her profession. She works at school from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.
She is requesting a loan for the purchase of three hogs. She will use the other part of the loan to expand the farm through, for example, keeping her vehicle in good shape.
Her goal is to manage this investment well and make improvements in her work and business.
