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).

Marlitt's story

Marlitt, 27, has lived in her family’s house for more than 10 years in Pucará District, a community noted for its hot climate. Its residents work in commerce and raising livestock. It’s two hours from Jaén Province that’s located in Cajamarca Region in Peru’s northern mountains.

She has worked providing accounting services in Pucará District Municipality for 4 years. She has a small store her mother manages in the city of Jaén. She’s asked for a 2,000 new sol loan to increase stock in her store to offer a wider variety of goods to her customers thus generating higher income.
