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 $625 helped to maintain her taxi.


Carolina's story

Carolina, 43, is married and has four children, although only three of them are financially dependent on her. She works in a "maquiladora" [foreign-owned factory] in the town. She's also the owner of a vehicle that she uses as a taxi. It's her source of income and her husband drives it.

Carolina is requesting our help to provide maintenance on her car. She will be grateful for the help that is offered.
