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 $1,200 helped to buy meat, soft drinks, snacks, herbs and spices, and bread.

Vicenta's story

Vicenta has decided to take out a new loan for the upcoming back-to-school season. She would also like to install electricity in her house. For her business, she will buy meat, soft drinks, snacks, herbs and spices and bread so that she can make fast food for the students. She believes that her previous loan helped her to improve her business. Her profits increased and her family have improved their conditions as her children have completed another school year.
