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 $525 helped purchase merchandise for her convenience store.


Maria Del Socorro's story

With much effort, María del Socorro G. makes a living kindly running her convenience store out of her home in the Sandino City area of the city of Managua. Maria takes care of her elderly mother, and with this in mind she's looked for ways to improve her business, and she's been able to do it thanks to loans from Kiva partner Ceprodel, which have been a great blessing for her store. Once more she's requesting a loan to purchase merchandise and hopes the credit will be approved so she can keep her business going.
