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).

Gloria Margarita's story

Gloria is 52 years old and sells food for a living. She works every day in her business which is located in her home. There she prepares a variety of dishes to sell to her customers. This business is the main source of income for Gloria and her family and she works together with her daughters who help her to prepare the food and serve customers.

Gloria will use her loan to buy supplies wholesale (potatoes, rice, noodles, etc.) so that she has a full pantry. Her previous loan went very well. Gloria is a very hard-working person. She has been selling food for many years and is very grateful to the institution for the support they provide.
