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).

Victoria Del Carmen's story

Victoria is a married woman who works as a secondary school teacher in the educational institution in the town where she lives. She teaches one session each day and also gives classes on weekends in her town. Her husband is also a secondary school teacher. She has two people besides herself in her nuclear family: her husband and one son, who attends school in the same town. Currently, she is facing a great need because she is experiencing poor health. For this reason she made the well-considered decision to visit Ceprodel to request a loan to help with the costs, since her family's income is not sufficient to cover the family expenses as well as studies for professional advancement. The loan will be used to pay for medications, clinical exams including urine, blood and bilirubin tests, ultrasound, CAT, tomography, the purchase of glasses, and payment for medical consultations.
