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 $600 helped to purchase corn, firewood, gas, concentrates, chickens, and feed.


Brenda Esmeralda's story

Brenda is requesting a new loan to continue investing in the production and sale of snack foods and likewise in increasing the productivity of her broiler chickens. The loan will be used to purchase corn, firewood, gas, concentrates, chicken, and feed. With her previous loan, Brenda was able to start another business raising chickens, giving her more economic stability and allowing her to continue educating her children and providing for their needs. She has been earning more money, and with her new business raising broiler chickens, the quality of her family's living conditions has improved (health, education, etc.).
