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 $900 helped buy supplies for her beauty parlor.


Gloria Haydee's story

Gloria is 40 years old and lives with her husband and 14-year-old son. She has been running a beauty parlor where she lives for 8 years. She works from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and has many customers because she works very hard. With the profits that she makes and with the help of her husband they are able to cover the household expenses.

Gloria is asking for a loan to be able to buy supplies for her beauty parlor such as creams, shampoo, hair clips, scissors, and other things that she needs. In this way, she will be able to obtain better profits and help her family have greater financial stability.
