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 $1,000 helped to buy a soda machine.


David's story

The young man David works making frozen sweets (products that take the form of frozen soda in a tube) in the factory in his home that is owned by his uncle. He works from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and afterwards he goes to the university for his studies. The client comes from divorced parents, and so he has learned to manage his own money and somehow to achieve his independence. The money that he is requesting is for the purchase of a soda machine, as a way to have his own money invested. He is a young man eager to succeed and grateful to the institution for their support.
