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 $1,200 helped to buy cement, iron, sand and brick, which will repair the pig pen.


Nilma Liseth's story

Nilma has decided to get a new loan with which she will buy cement, iron, sand and brick. These materials will repair the pig pen, to boost pig raising.

Nilma improved the livestock, and her financial situation is stable thanks to the support she has received in the form of loans. The new profit is spent on covering household expenses, paying her debts as well as buying piglets to start a new line of work.
