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 large quantities of food, drinks, and canned goods.

Luzmila's story

Luzmila is very happy, because as a result of her previous Kiva Loan she bought drinks, sweets, cleaning products and food items with which she was able to stock her store and generate a larger volume of sales. She has decided to continue growing her store and as a result is soliciting a new loan with which she will buy greater quantities of food, drinks, and canned goods. Her investment will be successful because she will buy these goods little by little, buying products that are sold frequently, in order to maintain her business well stocked so her clients can always find what they are looking for.

In her message to Kiva lenders, she sends her gratitude for the support provided, as they have enabled her to form her business, which every day exhibits a greater variety of products. She hopes that her lenders will continue supporting her.
