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).

Maria Delmy's story

María’s requesting a new loan because she needs more working capital to stock the store. This one will make it possible for her to buy basic staples like sugar, salt, beans, oil and soap, among others.

The previous loan helped her strengthen the business and income has increased; she invested it in her children’s schooling. Her economic conditions and family circumstances have been optimized.
