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 $825 helped to purchase packs of sheets and shoes.

Maura's story

Maura is single and at her age continues to work with enthusiasm at her business selling used clothing. She purchases the merchandise in Managua and sends it to the Atlantic coast of the country where her sisters do her the favor of selling her variety of products.

She is requesting this loan to purchase packs of sheets and shoes that her customers have ordered. She cannot pass up this opportunity to earn more income. She receives help from her brother, who lives outside the country, and from her children as well. This support will help pay for her loans.
