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).

Olga Julieta's story

Olga works in the field of education, passing on her knowledge to children. This work is not well-paid in Nicaragua. She has two school-aged children who are dependent on her. Olga is requesting this loan to undertake the replacement of a wood wall in part of the living room which is in poor condition due to many years in service and also to replace the roof whose structure is deteriorated. With the loan she will buy materials like zinc sheeting, quarry stone, cement, gravel and pay for labor. Her family will be able to live in peace in a pleasant environment, safe and free of flooding.
