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).

Ana's story

Ana is 44 years old, married and has two children who depend on her. For the past three years she has been selling clothing and shoes on foot. Ana lives in San Lorenzo, in southern Honduras, and her customers are her friends and neighbors from the community.

Ana is asking for a loan in order to buy shirts, pants, skirts, dresses, blouses, undergarments, sweaters, and shorts to stock her business for the Christmas season, so that she can satisfy her customers’ demands. They have requested lots of merchandise from her.

Ana is happy to be able to continue working and wants to provide her family with a better quality of life with the earnings from her business. Her dream is to continue working so that she can get ahead with her family.
