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).

Gricelda's story

Gricelda is a 42-year old woman, who is very hard-working and enterprising. She is responsible for her aunt, who has been sick for the past year because she had an embolism. That is why she works hard day after day to be able to pay the necessary medical expenses.

Gricelda has made her living selling used clothing for more than 20 years. She needs our help to be able to establish herself in a commercial premises, since her merchandise and clientele increase everyday, and she needs to increase her income to be able to buy the medication and therapy that her aunt needs.
