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 $625 helped to stock and set up his business.


Ceferino's story

Mr. Ceferino G. has already had three loans from FVP, which he repaid punctually and with which he has made improvements in his house and business. Now he is requesting a loan so that he can supply his business with a larger variety of products and so that he can set it up better. He and his wife, Mrs. Adriana Uresti, work in the business. Mr. Cerefino has spent more than nineteen years selling tacos, drinks and sweets outside a school. He also works as a guard at a company. These are the ways that the couple earns an income, since they live alone. This is also the income with which they will repay the loan.
