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).

Jamedith Del Carmen's story

Jamedith del Socorro lives in Cerro Bonito district. She works as a teacher, teaching the children in her community. She also has a plot of land and some livestock thanks to an inheritance from her parents. She is requesting her second loan with the aim of buying building supplies with which to improve her home. She will plaster her home and thereby create better living conditions for her family. She showed herself to be an excellent client over the course of her previous loans. She has the ability and will to make her repayments and her dream is to use her loan to finish building her home.
