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).

Rosario's story

Rosario works making various baked goods. She lives in her own finished house that has a cement floor; it’s located in the city of La Paz’s Irpavi zone. Rosario makes baked goods like turnovers, cakes and other baked goods to pay for her food, electricity and water costs. She needs the loan to buy ingredients like flour, sugar and butter to improve her income and her quality of life. Rosario’s dream is to own her own pastry shop.
