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).

Jairo's story

Jairo has owned Chien Inc., a home care veterinary service, for over six years. He founded this company after working extensively in the veterinary field and seeing a need for veterinary services that could be mobile and bring care to the patient. This vision, in addition to Jairo’s passion to become an entrepreneur, led to his founding Chien Inc., first established out of his Florida home.

Originally from Columbia, Jairo’s greatest success has come with the creation of his own business to support his family, and being able to create jobs for others. There is much room for expansion within the local community and Jairo would like to see Chien Inc. continue to grow. He is asking for this loan for two purposes. First, he would like to buy new medical equipment to keep his business fully functioning and the best it can be for his patients. Second, he would like to expand his marketing to reach further and attract a wider clientele.
