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).

Martha Esther's story

Martha is a young married woman. She doesn't have any children yet and lives in the city of Managua. Her commercial activity is being a stylist and also selling beverages, tacos and repochetas in her house. All of this is possible thanks to the supprt of her mother. Martha, as a young entrepreneur, is opting for a second loan for infrastructire. She is going to fix her floor and her main gate. She will buy ceramic tiles, cement, grout, and a ready made gate. The one she has is in bad condition and she urgently needs a new one for more security for her family. These improvements are for her home to look better to visitors and especially to customers.
