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).

Narciso De Jesús's story

Narciso de Jesús lives in the city of Masaya. He has worked as a plumber for Enacal for six years. He is married and has three dependent children for whom he works hard in order to provide them with what they need.

One of the needs that Narciso's family currently has is the need to improve the condition of the roof of their house since we are in the winter season now and their roof is no good. For this reason, he approached Ceprodel's offices to request a loan so that he could buy sheets or corrugated metal and beams in order to make this improvement which will improve his wife and children's quality of life.
