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).

Cristina's story

Cristina is from a very humble family and her goal is to finish her nursing degree and work for a company in her city. She wants to help people in need, while also earning more income to give her household more stability.

She is requesting a loan to pay higher education costs, which have become more difficult to pay the closer she gets to her goal. She is grateful for this opportunity.
