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 $400 helped to buy television sets.


Julio's story

Julio is an electronics technician. His shop is located on a very busy street. He offers television, computer, DVD player, radio and all kinds of electronic equipment repair services. He lives in the Tacagua zone in his mother’s house with his wife and children. His wife is a nurse and helps cover food and education costs. They both work very hard for the wellbeing of their children.

A short time ago Julio started selling television sets. Now, the loan he’s requesting is to buy television sets to repair and sell to obtain profits and increase his capital with this new enterprise. Julio works with the institution demonstrating responsibility with his payments.
