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).

Juan's story

Juan is a member of the “Santa Ana” communal bank. He’s 33-years-old and is in a common law relationship. He supports his family with much effort and dedication because his main economic activity is selling basic staples like rice, sugar, noodles, oil and other things. He has a sales stand where he sells his goods to neighbors, friends, family members and other people. He’s been in this business for several years now and does very well thanks to the effort he puts into his work.

On this occasion he needs the loan to buy sacks of rice, sacks of sugar, noodles, jugs of milk and bread to increase his business capital. He is grateful for and values the loan and commits to make his monthly installment payments very responsibly.
