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 $650 helped to buy materials to renovate her father's house.


Maria Auxiliadora's story

Maria Auxiliadora, 37, is married and has been working as a teacher in Acoyapa for 16 years. She is requesting her tenth loan in order to buy materials to renovate her father's house which is located in the San Agustin county in Acoyapa. She lives there with her husband and children. It is worth mentioning that Maria Auxiliadora and her siblings are very close and all of them have worked hard to support their father and improve the family's property.
