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).

Santos's story

Santos, 62, lives with her mother who has been dependent on her for the last two years. She works manufacturing articles of clothing like dresses, skirts, pants, blouses, etc. The business is located at home and thanks to the good service she has many customers.

Her wish is to be able to make improvements to her house because as can be seen in the photo, the roof over the front patio is deteriorated and needs to be repaired. She’s asking FUSAI for this loan to buy galvanized metal sheets, lumber and nails to replace the roof because it leaks when it rains. She hopes to get this support to make the necessary changes.
