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).

Juan's story

Juan is 37 years old. He is married and lives with his family in the Paiján district, which belongs to La Libertad, 4 hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque region.

He works in transportation. He has a motorcycle taxi as a vehicle (a vehicle that is made up of a motorcyle and a cabin to transport people in). Juan is well known in the area, and people prefer to use his service. This activity allows him to help support his family in its daily budget.

Juan wants to repair his motorcyle taxi, since with use and over time is has deteriorated. For this he has decided to ask for a loan of 750 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
