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).

Johonny Carson's story

Johonny is a young 26 year old entrepreneur who lives in the Department of San Martin together with his parents. He has a daughter who is the pride of his life and for whom he strives day by day to improve her quality of living. Unfortunately he cannot live together with her but this does not stop him from making the effort each day to provide comfort to his daughter. For more than one year he has been working in a Provincial Institute close to his home. Things are going well for him as he is an enthusiastic and very responsible person who is dedicated to his work.
Johonny is very grateful to the lenders at Kiva as with the support they offer he can buy replacement parts to repair his motorcycle. Then he can get around to any destination with no inconvenience and can continue to work happily.
