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 to purchase leads, fishing line, poles, etc.

Jose's story

Mr. Jose R. earns his living by selling fishing accessories, which he and his father make from their home. He supplies his materials from Market 4 in Asunción, where he buys everything he needs to make these accessories.

Jose has a well-established clientele, which means that he does most of business through advance orders. Jose needs this loan for the purchase of materials that he will be able to buy in bulk for a lower price. He intends to buy leads, fishing line, poles, etc.

In the future, Jose wishes to be able to purchase a vehicle in order to better carry out his work.
