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).

Bayardo Heriberto's story

Don Bayardo is 49 years old, married, and has three children who are under school age. He has worked for the San Antonio Supermarket as a distribution manager for water for 20 years.

He is requesting his second loan with the goal of continuing to improve his home, this time laying the tile and putting up the ceiling, and if there is the money, laying bathroom tiles – all for the purpose of providing greater comfort to his family.
