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).

Silvia Rosa's story

Silvia is an entrepreneurial woman. She is 35 years old, single, and she does not have children. She lives in Ica with her family. For almost one year she has worked as a clothing salesperson in a store. It is going very well because she is a responsible, hardworking person, and above all, kind and respectful to the customers.

She is a person with a strong desire to get ahead, and fights every day to provide a better quality of life to her family. Silvia is thankful to the Kiva lenders because with the support that they bring her, she will be able to remodel her home by painting the walls of her home and fixing up her room. In this way, she will be improving her quality of life and will keep striving ahead to reach her grand dream: "Own her own business."
