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 a cow.


Katherine Johana's story

Johana is a young woman who is 21 years of age. She is single and lives with her parents and a six-year-old sister who is in school.

Johana is very responsible and does a good job of looking after her cattle. She has been doing this for four years. The loan will be invested in the purchase of a cow. Raising livestock is a source of income for both her and her parents.

What this young woman aspires to do is to continue doing well in her business, just like she is doing now. She would like to expand her business so that it becomes more profitable. The income it generates would help her get ahead along with her family.
