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).

Francisca's story

Francisca, 51, is from the city of Itá. She's a very hardworking woman who strives and makes sacrifices to be able to get ahead.

Her job is in public transportations services. That is, she owns a bus that she has operated internally on a daily route for several years.

Francisca's requesting this loan to be able to invest in maintaining her vehicle so she can keep on providing good customer service and striving, as she has always done.
