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 $1,650 helped to buy groceries, snacks, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages.


Nidia's story

Nidia bought groceries with which she stocked her store. With this, sales have increased and also her income. Her shop now has better infrastructure. Her dream for the future is to add a floor to her home so that she can locate her store on the first floor and her family on the second. She sends her thanks to Kiva because she says that, "Without these loans I would be at a standstill, and wouldn't be able to keep moving forward."

Now she is applying for new credikiva loan, with which she will buy groceries, snacks, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. She knows by experience that getting ready for the Christmas and end-of-year holidays will make her credikiva loan the best investment.
