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 $1,375 helped a member to improve her beauty salon and add new products.


Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

Miguelina is a member of the group. She is an outgoing 30 year-old woman with one precious daughter and a drive to improve her economic situation. She owns a salon in her small community of Imbert, on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. With this loan she hopes to buy higher quality products, improve the appearance of the salon, and buy a new blow-dryer. When Miguelina isn’t working, she enjoys reading her Bible. Her favorite food is meat. In the future she hopes to have a proper home, and a safe place to raise her children.
