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 $600 helped to buy cosmetics and new clothing for her business.

Camila Lyli's story

Camila is a small merchant who sells cosmetics and clothing as a means of earning a living. She has three children who are already independent adults, and support her however they can with the household expenses. Camila has invested previous loans in merchandise for her business so that she could get ahead. The loan she is requesting this time is to invest in her business. She will use it to buy clothing and Avon and Zermat cosmetics, therefore allowing her to have a more varied product line to offer her customers.
