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 $500 helped to stock his store.


Vital Yovany's story

Vital is a homebody who lives with his wife and has three children. He sells fruits and vegetables and also has a store. He learned to do this from friends and then decided to buy a car so he could sell to his customers in the street and in the market. He’s been selling fruits and vegetables for a year and has had the store for six.

This loan will allow him to buy the merchandise he needs, such as fruits, vegetables, snacks, drinks, basic grains, and other things. This investment will help him improve his acquisition and stock his store better. It will also generate an income.

His dreams are to increase his sales, add other products to his store, make improvements to his home, offer a better quality of life to his family, and grow as a small businessman.
