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).

Leyla Isabel's story

Sra. Leyla is a determined woman who is 52 years of age. She thanks God that she is blessed to have two employees who generate better living conditions for her and her family members since they help provide her main source of income. AFODENIC has given Leyla the opportunity to make improvements to her home and expand her business.


Her goal for this new loan is to install a floor and to build a wall at the back of her house. This requires the following construction materials: cement, blocks, gravel, iron, wire, ceramic tile, porcelain tile, dividers, and other items. Her plan for the future is to finish the construction of her house.
