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 $500 helped to buy a laser.


Mirna Evelin's story

Mirna is married and has a nine year old child. She lives with her husband and child and has no family in foreign countries. She works on her own as a physical therapist and has a 7:00 am to 5:00 pm schedule. With her experience she doesn’t have any problems and she also trains to provide better service.

She will use the money from this loan to buy a laser so that she will have what she needs to provide quality service, attract more customers, and increase her earnings so she can repay the debt and expand her business.

Her dream is to provide a university education to her daughter, so she can have a better future.
