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).

Guillermina De Los A's story

Guillermina lives in La Primavera neighborhood. She has been selling cosmetics for a year, and thanks to the quality and price of her products, her clientele has been steadily increasing. Guillermina is 23 years old, married and has a 3-year-old daughter. Her husband works in an industrial free zone as an assembly line operator. Guillermina is a very active go-getter. The loan she is requesting will be used as a work capital in her cosmetic business to offer a wider variety of products to her clients. Her long-term goal is to rent or build a small store to expand her business, and she hopes to stay healthy and have enough money to provide for her daughter's education.
