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).

Manos Unidas Group's story

This committee consists of 12 members who all have small businesses. These women are very excited about having this great opportunity to grow as a group.

Claudia is a beautician who is always busy with many customers since she is a very good professional. All of her customers always leave her establishment happy with the work she has done. Her dream is to someday have a larger salon where she can provide jobs to other people who need them.

Claudia is requesting a loan in order to buy combs, shampoo, rinses, sprays, and other supplies that she needs to restock her salon and continue providing good service to her customers.
