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 $1,025 helped to buy milk cows.


Rita's story

Rita is single and has no children. She lives with her brother in the community of San Juan de Circa, in a house made of adobe.

Rita sells milk and needs a loan to buy milk cows and increase her income. Rita is the only one earning money at home, so she needs help.
