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 $1,000 helped construction materials to renovate the wall around her land.

Esperanza's story

Esperanza lives on Huancane Street in the Villa Amor de Dios zone of El Alto city. She is separated and lives in her own house with her son, who works.

She works selling food in the mornings from her cart, in each of the street markets in that zone. She also works as a minibus (public transportation) assistant in the afternoons.

This loan will be used to buy construction materials to renovate the main wall around her property. It is Esperanza’s first loan with Impro, and after evaluation she has been qualified to receive a loan.
