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 $950 helped to buy pigs, ducks, and animal feed.


Teresa Giovanny's story

Teresa, 37, is a single mother. She has one daughter and lives in her family house, in a small community in Túcume with approximately 100 families, and has electricity and water services.

She always has worked raising and selling animals and groceries. She has developed excellent experience in business. She especially sells pigs, ducks, and beer. She sells her animals throughout the Túcume area and already has regular customers.

In particular, Teresa has been able to develop this business thanks to her hard work and good reputation, because this is her third loan with the organization. She will use this latest loan of 2500 soles [PEN] to expand her business buying animals, especially pigs and ducks, and animal feed.
