Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. 

I just made a loan to Celia Jenny -

Celia Jenny is 42 years old, a widow, living with her father and her 14 year old son. She lives in the Ventanas canton of the Rios province.

The service point El Recreo is located in the San Vicente Las Lomas area, belonging to the Ventanas canton. This service point is dedicated to short cycle farming such as growing corn, rice, beans and soy beans.

Jenny has been making a living growing corn, beans and rice for the last three years. She buys her products in Ventanas and sells her production in the same place.
