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 $1,075 helped to make improvements on her house.

Rosa Yoselin's story

Rosa is a 21 year old single woman. She lives in the city of Chincha with her parents and her siblings. She is an enthusiastic hard-worker who has a great desire for self-improvement. Sadly, due to the lack of financial resources and out of the need to work, Rosa was not able to study for a professional career.

On her own initiative, Rosa works as a sales person at a commercial store in her city. She works every day for approximately ten hours. She believes that it is going well for her because of her dedication and her good performance.

Rosa is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help provided, she will make improvements to her house. She wishes to improve the walls, put in the floor, and refurbish the roof on her house. This way she will continue working and putting forth great effort in order to achieve her big dream of becoming a professional.
