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).

Viviana Cenith's story

Viviana invested her previous Kiva loan in merchandise to stock up her business. She also bought a showcase since her old one was too small and she couldn’t fill it with the demands of the market. Currently, she is requesting a new Kiva loan so she can buy flour, coffee, rice, sugar, soda, juice and so she can replace a glass window that’s in bad shape. Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following: Thank you for giving me your support and trust, and I hope you will continue to support us so I can achieve my goal of having my own home.
