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 $1,000 helped buy products to resell.


Henry Nilton's story

This member belongs to the Manos Juntas ("Joined Hands") community bank in the Huanchac district of the Peruvian "departamento" of Cusco.

His name is Sr. Nilton. He is 42 years old and married with 3 children. He operates a retail business. He has a stand in the main commercial district where he sells toys. He travels to Lima and Juliaca to see what new toys he might buy and brings back any that he thinks he can resell. He is applying for this loan to buy stock for his business.

Sr. Nilton is grateful for the loan and he is fully committed to repaying it on time.
