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).

Ayda's story

Two years ago, Ayda, a 57-year-old woman, joyfully retired and the company where she worked gave her a pension. Being a very active woman, she decided not to stand idly by (unoccupied) so she started her business with her savings. She now sells clothes, women's accessories, and household accessories, among other items of interest to families. Ayda works 12 hours every day to improve her family's quality of life, which consists of her spouse and their 3 children, ages 19, 28, and 32. Her greatest challenge is obtaining financing in order to improve her business's image and increase her inventory. This is why she is requesting a Credikiva, the first loan she's had from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to buy clothes and accessories to increase the items she offers and improve her business with this loan.
