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).

Delfina's story

With her last loan Delfina bought supplies and items that she uses for new shoe designs. She also bought merchandise that she sold and with that earned a little more money. She is currently applying for a new CrediKiva loan to purchase soles, heels, dyes, glue, and buckles. She also will buy some food products to sell in her hut. Her message to Kiva supporters is the following, “we are very grateful and if you can continue helping us, please do so”.
