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 $600 helped to use $500.00 to buy clothing for adults and for children, $50 to buy fruits, and the remaining money to invest in the purchase of rolls, to go to the soccer field and sell bread with beans and cream.

Ana Evelyn's story

Ana is a young woman, age 27. She is the mother of a family of three children, ages 12, 10 and 7. They study in the elementary school in the community where they live. Ana studied until the sixth grade in her community.

She lives with her husband of 13 years. He works making trips in a pick-up, from their community to the districts and villages of their community and to the city every day.

Ana’s aunt also lives in their home. Ana is the second out of four siblings, who live in the U.S. Only she and her parents still live in their country.

From the time she was very young, Ana has worked selling clothing, and her parents raised her in their clothing sales business. Currently, she sells clothes for children and adults in the community and in the adjoining villages. From Monday to Friday she also sells fruit in the community. Sometimes on Sundays she sells bread and other snacks at the soccer field.

She buys her stock (clothing) twice a month, depending on the season. It takes an hour and a half to get to the place on a city bus.

The loan that she seeks from Fundación Campo is to buy clothing for adults and children. She will invest $500 in this. From the remaining funds, she will buy $50 worth of fruit. She will invest the rest of the money in buying bread to go the soccer field and sell bread with beans and cream.

With the loan she hopes to achieve a larger income for her family, because right now the season in which there is a high demand for clothing is approaching.

Her biggest dream is to support her kids in their studies, because she didn’t have that type of support to continue learning and to develop herself into a professional.
