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 $1,000 helped to buy flour, cheese, shortening, and yeast.


Teresa Margot's story

Teresa is 61 years old. She is married and has no children. She lives at home with some family members in Chimba, Bolívar Province.

Teresa has a bakery. She is requesting this loan to buy flour, cheese, shortening, and yeast. With the support from this loan, she will be able to buy what is necessary to make bread.

She will make her purchases in the city of Guaranda. The challenge that she faces is competition.

Her dream is to improve her standard of living. In her free time, she likes to walk through the city.
