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).

Idalia Andrea's story

Idalia is 41 years old and gets ahead thanks to her small general store business, which she works with her husband who is a machine operator. This allows them to pay for their son’s education and also repay their loans, which they have been using to build their home. This is their fifth opportunity for a loan and she wants to secure her home by adding front gates and iron doors. She will use the money to buy plates, iron bars, cement, cinder blocks, and sand. Her future plans are to finish building her house and live a little better.
