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).

Erick Miguel's story

Miguel is a native of Zone One in the Totonicapan department. His primary activity is raising chickens.

He now needs a loan to build a small hen house. He has been raising chickens for over ten years. He currently has five thousand laying hens. They collect approximately three thousand eggs daily. They are distributed to different stores in the area. With the construction, they will be buying a thousand chickens to be able to meet the customers’ demands.
