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).

Beatric's story

Beatric is 22 years old and lives with a friend in the town of Paynesville South. She has a 12-year-old child who attends school. Beatric had to stop her education in the 10th grade, and went into business selling clothing. She learned this business from her aunt, and now sells items for both boys and girls. She uses her profits to care for her child and expand her business, and is requesting this loan to buy more used clothing to sell. Her plan for the future is to build a house.
