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 $850 helped to buy personal use products.


Maria Amparo's story

When her husband abandoned her, Maria Amparo decided to start her own business of selling personal use products so that she could generate household income to support her two children. The financial difficulties she faced at home were very tough, but through her efforts, she was able to move her business forward little by little.


Maria Amparo is now seeking a loan so that she can buy personal use products and restock her business in time for the season when her sales increase considerably. Her dreams are to have a successful business and to help her children move forward by providing them a good education and a better quality of life.
