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).

Juana Gladis's story

Juana Gladis, 30, lives with her children. She sells various products, natural medicine, women’s and men’s clothing and personal care products. She’s well known in her area and lately she’s had higher demand from her clients as her products are of good quality and affordable prices. Juana is an honorable person and very dedicated to her work. She thinks you have to see yourself as a winner to be one. She sees herself as triumphant and that’s why she decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL. This loan will help her buy natural medicine, clothing, cosmetics, etc. Juana Gladis hopes that this will help her improve her family’s quality of life.
