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).

Albalina Del Carmen's story

Señora Albalina, together with her family, is a resident of the municipality of Ticuantepe. Her plans for her family are to finish construction on their home. Señora Albalina is very happy about the help being offered by Afodenic through Kiva. With her first loan, she was able to close off the plank wall she had. Now she needs financing to be able to tile her little house. Currently, the house is earthen and she doesn't have enough money to purchase the tile. Señora Albalina works as a domestic servant in a private home and her husband sells chickens, and so they only make enough to barely cover their household expenses.
