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 $1,575 helped to buy women's and men's clothing.

Kathuska Annabelle's story

Kathuska is a 21-year-old woman and the has many aspirations for the coming years of prospering in her clothing sales. Her story began with only the help of her mother selling clothing from catalogs. From there, she began to save and took out a loan to buy more merchandise. She does her work on her own and the difficulty she faces is crime. She isn't married; she has children; and her most important dream is to keep going with her business and to be professional and to help her son. That is why she wants this loan for her sales of men's and women's clothing.
