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).

Rita Ana's story

Rita keeps her business going with great effort and sacrifice. She sells food in the streets to help her two children who attend school. Being a single mother, she is making the sacrifice to build a wall around her house so they can feel more secure. She is asking for a loan, her second, so that she can buy cinder blocks, cement, iron bars, sand, and pay for labor. Rita’s greatest desire is to have her own food stall in the Managua market so that she can support her family and continue to grow with her children. This is why she works arduously to achieve this.
