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).

Yolanda Del Socorro's story

Yolanda, 61, is a great merchant who has dedicated her whole life to this trade. She currently works from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. from her home or wherever her customers require. Yolanda is single, so she must work to earn money and be self sufficient. She is requesting the loan to purchase supplies to fulfill her customers' orders for the end of the year. Her dream is to have her own warehouse.
