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).

Graciela's story

Graciela is married to Juan and they have two children who are in elementary school. They are requesting the loan for the finishing touches for their children’s room as it is lacking paint and ceramic tile, but they don’t have the money necessary to complete the improvements.

Graciela is employed as a documentation specialist at a transportation company and her husband works for a factory as a production coordinator. The salary Graciela receives will be for paying the loan and the income from her husband Juan is for the family and school expenses.

They desire for their children to have their own space and to improve the quality of life.
