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 $225 helped pay for plumbing repairs.


Irene's story

Sra. Irene Garcia Juárez is a pensioner and receives financial support from her children who live in the United States. At the moment, she wants to repair the plumbing in her house since pipes are leaking large amounts of water, thereby leaving her with expensive utility bills. For this reason, she wants to fix the problem as soon as possible to prevent wasting so much water.
