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).

Guillerma Emilia's story

Guillermina is a fighting woman. She is 43 years old, married, and has 4 adolescent children. They don't attend school due to the distance of the school, since it is located 90 kilometres from the municipality of Puerto Cabezas.

Since she was a child she has worked in agriculture, and she has a farm of 40 manzanas which produces maize, bananas, tubers, grains and houses cattle. She asks for her first loan with the goal of increasing the area of production of bananas, malanga and taro. Her dream is to improve the productive quality of her farm.
