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 $1,500 helped to buy perfume to re-sell.

Ana's story

Ana is from the city of Curuguaty. She is 30 years old, single, and lives with her parents. She is a teacher who teaches mornings. She also owns a perfume store which is located in her home. Ana sells imported perfumes and cosmetics for cash and on credit. She has an established customer base and makes good sales because of the terms that she offers all her customers. She started her perfume store with some savings that she had, then gradually expanded it with loans from Fundación Paraguaya, expanding her stock. This is making her good profits.

On this occasion, Ana is requesting a new loan so that she can stock her business with a wider variety of perfumes and cosmetics. This will enable her to continue working and offer a good variety of products to her customers.
