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 $875 helped merchandise for general store.


Alfredo Abraham's story

Maria Concepcion Loza Medina, the wife of Abraham M., appears in the photo because her husband was working.

The store is called "Miscelanea America" and has been in operation for 3 years. Abraham M. is a supervisor in a factory and is a very enterprising person who saved money over time in order to start this business for his wife, to bring in more income.

He would like to buy more merchandise for the store, because if the store offers more varied products, the customers will find what they were looking for and thus be satisfied.
