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).

Roldan's story

Roldan is a young man who wants to finish building his house because he wants for his children to have a safe home. He is confident that through vegetable sales and his small grocery store business he will achieve his dream. He didn’t have the support of his parents to get ahead in life, and this was a big difficulty for him. But through his own work, he is covering the costs of studies for his two children and supports his wife. This is the first loan he is requesting to buy cement blocks, cement, rebar, gravel, sand, and quarry stone so that he can continue building the walls, roof, and windows and finish this big dream for his family.
