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).

Pedro's story

Pedro G. and Margarita Lopez have been married for more than 30 years. They live in their own home, which is located a few kilometers away from the city. The couple have grown children who contribute to the household income.


Pedro, age 56, has owned a sausage factory for over 25 years. The factory is operated by Pedro and his children. He has formed a strong clientele over many years, making his business sustainable and profitable.


Pedro needs credit to purchase raw materials to manufacture his products, which are in high demand because they are of good quality.
