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).

Jaime Antonio's story

Jaime is 36 years old, single and has three children. He lives in the municipality of Negrito, Yoro. He has always worked in farming and with livestock. One year ago Jaime set up his own business selling spare parts to repair motorcycles and mototaxis. His business stocks spare parts including tyres, seals, rings, pistons, brake pads, cylinder heads, cylinders, and other parts.

He is applying for a loan of 25,000 lempiras which he will use to restock spare parts for mototaxis such as tyres, cylinders, brake pads, bolts, brakes, cables, and other parts. His goal is to generate an income from his business to improve his finances.
