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 $725 helped purchase wood to make furniture.

Pedro's story

Pedro F. is 32 years old and started his business around the year 2006. He sold a motorcycle to be able to have capital to start his small business buying and selling clothes. Currently he has a well-established clientele and is launching a new carpentry business that will add to his family's income. He makes high-quality furniture for some furniture stores in the area and also for particular customers by request. He plans to use the loan to purchase wood to make the furniture and buy more merchandise (clothing such as shirts, pants, shorts, blouses and other items) with the rest of the money.
