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).

She plans to use this loan to invest in her miscellaneous products business, selling clothes, cosmetics, shoes, etc. Benita will use this loan to increase her inventory. She will use the profits to invest in her business and to support her family’s needs. She thanks all of you for your support.
