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 $950 helped to buy sewing supplies.

Ana Ofelia's story

Ana Ofelia is married and she is 23 years old. She completed two years of primary education. She has one child. She sews traditional aprons for a living, having learned how to do this work from friends. She currently has three years of experience and she also has the support of her husband, who works as a day laborer and supports her financially.

She is asking for a loan to buy yards of fabric, decorations, and thread, as she wants to increase her production of aprons. She hopes to have better sales in the future and she plans on achieving this through her loan by making enough to repay it with money left over.
