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 $650 helped to buy buy clothing and beauty products and also a cell phone plan.

Mireya's story

Mireya used her previous loan with Kiva to buy items such as perfumes, clothing, jewelry, beauty products, and also to buy natural medicines. She sold all these items and had a rapid turnover, slightly increasing her working capital.

With this new loan that she is seeking, Mireya will buy clothing and beauty products in greater volume. She will also buy a cell phone plan so that she can continue serving her customers well. She wants to have for sale everything they need and thus increasing the amount of money she earns. Her message to Kiva donors is as follows: “Blessings on the whole of the Kiva group, and may you continue helping our brothers and sisters in Colombia so they can reach their dreams.”
