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).

Erasmo's story

Erasmo J. Cáceres, 21, is single and works to take care of his family, his mother and his three younger siblings since his father abandoned them when Erasmo was 18. Since then he has been responsible for his family.

He is a young man who is very dedicated to his work. He works as a moto taxi driver with CARRASCO, where he has been working more than two years. He transports customers daily so he can take care of his mother and siblings so in the future they will have and enjoy the things he didn't have in his youth.

Erasmo came to the offices looking for a loan to buy a motorcycle so he can work in the town of Ivirgarzama with his own equipment and have more income for the well-being of his mother and siblings and for a better future for his family.
