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).

Astrid Ivette's story

Astrid is a young student of obstetrics in a local university. She is 18 years old and is studying for a career in obstetrics because she has felt it was her vocation from the time she was very young. Her degree program will last 4 years, of which she has completed a year and a half. Her greatest desire is to finish her degree successfully and to be a great professional.

In the future she wants to pursue her career by working in a prestigious health institution. Astrid is a very studious and dedicated young woman. Thanks to this loan she will be able to pay her university fees and also buy some tools that she needs to develop her career. Astrid is very grateful to the investors for giving her this loan, as without this support she would not be able to continue her studies.
