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).

Glenda Lizeth's story

Glenda Lizeth is 26 years old and lives with her life partner, 32 year old Federico, and their three young children. She works for a company doing embroidery and also sells different kinds of fruits, such as apples, oranges, bananas, and other things. Her husband helps with the sales and they have a good customer base. People prefer her because she sells good fruit at good prices and the service is unequalled. Glenda is dedicated to her work and always ready to take advantage of her time and opportunities. Her family’s wellbeing is her priority, so she works hard to give them the best. She is worried because it’s already winter and her house needs a retaining wall to keep the water out when it rains. The problem is that she doesn’t have the money because her earnings are too low. She is asking for a loan through FUSAI so that she can buy cement, bricks, sand, tools, etc. Glenda Liezth is known for repaying her debts and is very grateful for this assistance. She will be responsible in repaying this loan and be able to provide a better quality of life for her family.
