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).

Rosa Elba's story

Rosa is thirty-three years old and lives in her own house together with her husband and two children, ages 9 and 4. She has made a living selling vegetables for one year, and has been able to pay for some home necessities with the money she makes from her work. She is very hardworking, responsible, and kind with her customers. For this reason, she has a large customer base.

Rosa is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of vegetables wholesale. She will buy onions, tomatoes, potatoes, etc. and have more variety. She will be able to earn a better income and to give her family a better quality of life.
