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 $425 helped to buy fabric and accessories.

Gelgi De Los Angeles's story

Gelgi provided for her now three grown and independent children. Her husband is retired. She holds a college degree in administration, but, for lack of employment, she works mostly as a seamstress. She now has client orders, but she lacks money to buy materials to fill them. So she has applied for a loan to buy fabric and accessories.
