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).

Zoraida's story

Zoraida belongs to the communal bank “Señor de los Milagros de Chimpahuaylla” in the city of Cusco, Peru. She continues to make a living selling basic foodstuffs in her grocery. Zoraida has worked in her shop for some time and it is with this activity that she raises 2 small children. For this opportunity, she will invest her loan in growing her business and she will buy merchandise like rice, sugar, milk, noodles, sodas and cases of beer in order to stock her store. Zoraida is very grateful to KIVA for allowing her to maintain her business, support her home, and provide a better life for her children.
