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 $700 helped to buy wheel covers and pumps for resale.


Mario's story

Señor Mario G. M. lives in the city of Santani in his own house. He is single and 36 years of age. He is the owner of a tire store with 11 years of experience. He also sells used and new wheel covers. His business is in a good location, next to route 3.

This is his third loan with this institution, having repaid his previous loans in excellent fashion. He again requests a loan for the purchase of wheel covers and pumps.
