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).

Daniela's story

Daniela is an active, dynamic and enterprising woman of 23 years of age who, from early on has liked crafts and things in which she can develop her creativity. She is a student in audiovisual communication and also has her own business where she makes jewelry for women. She learned this trade from a friend who carried out the same work and he started making a few items for her own use as a hobby. Later on, she contacted a few stores which saw her work and liked the goods, hence why she is now selling them, she has the support of two employees who work every day in the afternoon. In this manner, she has managed to generate an income to support her household's income and pay for her university studies.

The loan that Daniela is seeking is a means of support to improve her business; with the money from the loan, she will buy three work benches, 3 chairs and supplies in bulk (jewels, chains, threads, ribbons, broaches and so on). All of this will allow her to improve the working conditions and meet the orders that are pending as well as be in a position to earn new contracts, improving the profits that she makes through her work.

Daniela is planning for the mid-term future, owning a much larger workshop, in which she can generate more job opportunities and that her brand and products become renowned nationally, paving the way to being a large distributor and generating larger profits to enjoy a better quality of life and be a successful professional.
