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 $500 helped to buy rice, oil, beans, eggs and sugar.


Blanca Estela's story

Blanca has decided to ask for a new loan to provide continuity for her business, as after the last loan she set up a store which she intends to stock up with everyday products such as rice, oil, beans, eggs. and sugar. This will allow her to have more merchandise in her business, and be able to improve service for her customers.

She demonstrates that she has received good assistance from her earlier loan; she invested it in pigs and new products to attract customers, providing her the opportunity to improve her income.
