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.

A loan of $1,300 helped grow her artisan business.

Ana Isabel's story

Ana is a single woman, 28 years old, who lives with her parents, who live on Calle Bugdof 2 Aldea San Jorge La Laguna, Sololá.

She buys and sells artisan products such as silver jewelry, artisan purses, and marble figurines. She started doing this 12 years ago.

She chose this activity because her parents taught her to work at a young age, and because of this she generates revenue and earnings that allow her to support her family.

She is requesting a loan of Q. 10,000.00 that she will use to grow her business to have diversity of silver jewelry, artisan purses, and marble figurines.

Her dream is to build a home and become independent to be an entrepreneurial woman.
