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).

Jose Mercedes's story

Mrs. Jose is a woman who is worried about the health of those around her, and that is why she was called to get a degree in nursing, which she practices in a health center in the area where she lives. She has 28 years of working in this profession. She is single with one child under her care, to whom she brings everything he needs to grow up. Right now, she needs to improve the ceiling of her house, so she decided to visit Ceprodel in order to ask for a loan for construction materials such as: Zinc, Perlin, Ceramics, Cement Bonds, and manual labor, in order to complete the work and everything that is necessary. This way, she will improve her living conditions and increase her standard of living.
