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 $700 helped to buy cement, sand, bricks, iron and a door to build a bathroom.

Maria Santos's story

María is 46, married and lives in her own home together with her husband and their son, aged 13. She has worked for 8 years as a domestic worker. She wants to improve the condition of their bathroom. She is asking for this loan through FUSAI to invest it in buying cement, sand, bricks, iron and a door because currently the bathroom is not very secure and she wants to provide better conditions for her family.
