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 $600 helped to put a roof on his house.


Jorge Alberto's story

Señor Alberto is a very responsible and hard-working person who currently works for a company as a bus driver. His biggest dream is to make improvements to his home. Through his effort and dedication, he has paid for this little by little. This time, he needs our help to finish putting a roof on his house since the rainy season is coming. He is thankful for the support to carry out this project, which will let him make his house look better and also be more comfortable.
