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 $925 helped to build a wall around his house.


José De Dios's story

Jose de Dios' house does not have a surrounding wall following an car accident that destroyed it.

He requests a loan to be able to purchase construction material that he needs and to hire a person to carry out the project.

He wants to provide his family with safety and well-being.

He plans on repaying the loan with the income that he obtains from his work as a delivery person for a snack food business.
