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).

Rosalia's story

Rosalia is taking a loan of $1000 to improve her business. She is running a kiosk that helps her to generate income for her family. She will use the loan to buy stock to keep in her store such as cigarettes, noodles, soft drinks (Fanta, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Sagiko), hard drinks (beer) and 'body loosen,' biscuits, water, cards and slippers. She opened her kiosk a year ago with her own working capital of $200. Rosalia is a hard-working woman and she hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
