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 $800 helped to buy rice, sugar, and other things.


Aurelia's story

The member continues with Virgen Concebida de Arin Communal Bank, raising small animals (guinea pigs and chickens) and making "chicha de jora" [corn liquor]. She also makes a living selling staple items such as rice, sugar, pasta, and other things. She has been in this business for several years now and it's going very well for her.

She's requesting the loan to buy bags of rice, bags of sugar, and other things.

She's a responsible and kind person who gets her family ahead. She's happy about the loan and is committed to making her payments on time.
