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 buy more inventory for her natural products business.

Maria Irene's story

María Irene has been working for four years now at her business selling natural products from her home. She is requesting a loan to buy more inventory, because she has various orders pending from clients and she has been unable to fill them because of a lack of merchandise.

María Irene is a native of Nuevo Laredo and is 44 years old. She is married to Alfredo, with whom she has a child. She would like to improve the profits of her business so that she can help her husband with household expenses.
