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).

Dolores Armida's story

Dolores has opted to apply for a new loan because she is in need of more working capital. This investment will help her to buy fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, cabbage, green beans, chipilin leaves, onions, carrots, potatoes, grapes, and apples, among others.

Her previous loan had a positive effect, because she always keeps her business stocked and her sales have improved. Her family circumstances are the same. She would like to buy a pick-up truck to make trips, thereby obtaining a higher income. She would also like to expand her home.
