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 $475 helped to buy cement, sand, iron, gravel, and blocks and to pay the labor costs for the construction of a front wall.

Reyna Sulema's story

Reyna is a client that is applying for her eighth loan. She is married. Her husband has worked as a security guard but currently is unemployed. Therefore, she maintains the home and a son helps her economically.

Reyna has been selling new clothing as a commercial activity for 6 years. On this occasion, she is requesting a loan from Afodenic and Kiva for the construction of a front wall for her house so that her property has greater privacy. For this reason, she needs to buy materials such as cement, sand, iron, gravel, and to pay for the labor costs.
