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).

Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is single and lives with his parents. He has a small business selling cell phone accessories and credit for pre-paid cell phones in the Mercedes neighborhood. Selling his products is gratifying, and he has a considerable number of clients making him a satisfactory income.

With his wife's help, they are succeeding with a strong will, work, and dedication. Their business has become a successful microenterprise, and they are always showing progress.

Currently, he is hoping to sell several different models of cell phones along with the accessories. This would greatly increase his income. He is applying for the loan to purchase a supply of cell phones.
