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).

Eufemia Guillerma's story

Eufemia is a woman of 63, and she has many aspirations for her business to prosper in the coming years. She began with a little store, and little by little it grew. She likes this business. She does her work alone, and doesn't have any particular problems. She is single and has one son who is an adult. Her most important dream is to continue growing her business. For this reason, she wants the loan to increase her sales by buying hard candies, stationery items, and sweets.
