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 $800 helped buy more wholesale clothes and shoes.


Claudia Maribel's story

Claudia lives in her own house with her parents and her two children. She has worked selling clothes and shoes for more than 8 years. She is friendly, honest, and dedicated to her work. She has a large clientele that place her products on high demand since she sells in an area that is very busy. This becomes an advantage to her and helps her increase her sales.

She is asking for a loan to invest in her business by buying wholesale merchandise. In this way, she will be able to increase her income and improve her quality of life.
