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 $650 helped to buy shoes in bulk.


Gloria Elizabeth's story

Gloria Elizabeth is 25 years old and originally from the neighborhood of Calvario. Two years ago, she began selling a variety of shoes from a store located in a shopping center in San Martin. She thanks God that her business has grown.


Gloria Elizabeth is requesting a loan so that she can buy shoes in bulk because she needs to offer more styles, designs, and sizes. With the assistance and support that Kiva has provided, she expects to move forward with her business.
