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).

San Miguel Group's story

The group called “San Miguel” has been working together for 12 cycles. They are all female heads of household who joined together in order to help their families by means of their work. One of the members is Tomasa who by means of her effort and work is improving her and her family’s lives.

She relates that she’s always worked and fears no challenge. She’s asking for this loan to be able to invest in jeans, t-shirts, shirts, blouses and others to continue innovating and giving good products to her customers.
