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).

Janeth Mercedes's story

Janeth is an entrepreneurial and responsible young woman who lives with her husband and daughter in the southern region of Honduras. Her income is what she gets from her business, which is sales of parts and accessories for printers.

Janeth needs this loan to buy toner, printers, ink, computer mice, and USB drives. With this loan, she hopes to increase her sales and offer a greater range of products to her customers and continue improving her family's life.

In the future, Janeth wants to be able to buy her own property and have her own business location there. She also wants to continue supporting her husband and family who don't have many other resources.
