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 $1,175 helped to purchase materials for making bags from plastic and jute for her grocery bag sales business.


Justina's story

Justina is married, she has a child, and she lives with her parents in La Paz, in a house made of brick and cement that belongs to her family.

Justina makes grocery bags, and her husband works in a pharmacy.

Justina needs a loan in order to purchase materials for making bags from plastic, and from jute (a kind of yarn).
