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 $1,200 helped to buy construction materials.


Juan Ramon's story

Juan, a resident of Masaya municipality, lives with his wife and children. They have worked hard to move forward. His greatest dream is to improve conditions to have a better future. He has sold fruits and vegetables in departments in the country for more than 15 years. His wife helps him with household expenses, since she has her own business selling clothing and shoes. With this loan, he will buy construction materials like quarried stone, cement, iron, a truckload of sand, corrugated metal roofing, and cinderblocks. With these, he can continue construction on his home. He is grateful for the support that Afodenic and Kiva have given him upon providing him with this loan.
