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).

Candida Rosa's story

Cándida is someone who is constantly concerned about other people's health. She is a nursing auxiliary at the health center in the area where she has lived for 23 years. She is married and has two dependent children.

She is currently requesting a small loan to renovate her home which is in disrepair. She will use the loan to buy beams, cement, sand, blocks, screws, metal sheeting and to hire workers. This will improve her living conditions. Through much effort, she has carried out other renovations through previous loans. She is grateful to Ceprodel for the support in helping her reach her goals so she can lead a better lifestyle.
