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 $725 helped to buy sheep and guinea pigs.


Hilda's story

Hilda continues her businesses selling cereals, selling sheep, and raising guinea pigs. She sells them in different markets. She has been running these businesses for four years, and it is going very well.

Hilda's dream is to have a fixed place of business where she can sell the cereals and the animals. She is applying for this loan in order to buy cereals, as well as sheep and guinea pigs. She is happy to receive the loan and pledges to make her repayments on time.
