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 $375 helped to buy tables and chairs.


Beatriz's story

Beatriz Adriana Z. A. is 23 years old and was born in Monterrey. She is single and has two children, ages two years and six months.

After her husband moved to the U.S., at first it was so difficult because she was working but also needed to take care of her baby. She decided that a business could be the best option, because she could make some money and care for her baby at the same time.


She is an enterprising woman, so she started selling tacos at her home two years ago. At first she was just selling tacos in the morning, but as time passed by, she became well-known in the neighborhood and her business grew. Recognizing this, she decided to sell tacos in the morning and hamburgers in the evening.


Now she needs $375 in order to buy some tables and chairs. She promises to repay it in four months. The tables and chairs will help her to sell more and she will become a more successful businesswoman.
