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).

Aridys Margoth's story

Aridys is 30 years old and the single mother of two daughters, ages 5 and 10. She has been doing catalog sales for more than five years and has been generating income that she needs to live and get her two young daughters ahead. Her goal is to buy merchandise in quantity (perfume, accessories, face and body creams, etc.) to offer her customers so they don’t have to wait for orders to arrive, and take advantage of the end of years season. This helps her sales.

Her greatest dream is to be able to open a store where she can sell different styles of clothing, which will allow her to have a greater and more stable income with which to support her family and her daughters’ education.
