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 $700 helped to pay for the purchase of plastic containers.

Maria De Los Angeles's story

María de los Ángeles lives in a small town. She is married to Ramiro and they have two children who are in their care. She is requesting a loan in order to invest in the purchase of plastic containers for sale. She has been working in this area for one year and she comments that things are going well and that she has improved her income for the business and the family. She began the business on her own and she wants to support her husband with household expenses and give all the necessities to her small family. What she most desires with her small activity and the loan is to be able to continue working and to rent a shop in town where she can exhibit her plastic containers and bedspreads and also sell them.
