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 $500 helped purchase batteries.


Jorge Emanuel's story

Jorge is 18 years old, single, has no children, rents his room from a boarding house, and is known in the area.

He inherited the business from his father, and now he is responsible for managing it.

The things he sells the most are motor oil, filters of all types, and replacement parts for Japanese cars.

He is requesting this loan from Kiva partner Fundacion Paraguaya to buy batteries in bulk.

He is grateful for the help from Fundacion Paraguaya.
