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 $800 helped home improvement.


Lucero Ma. De Los Ángeles's story

Lucero had one previous loan through MVP and was on time with all of her payments. The room that she built onto her home with the money from her previous loan is still missing the fixtures. She is asking for this loan in order to be able to finish her two young children’s bedroom. At this time she does not have the money to buy the materials and pay for labor.

She plans to repay with part of the income that her husband, Victor Hugo, earns as an employee of a machary maintenance company.
