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 $1,200 helped to buy sodas, juices, sweets, and cookies for his business.


Jose Concepcion's story

José is married, and he lives with his wife and two children. He is a salesman with an established route. He started as a helper, but he now has his own business. He works Monday to Sunday. He does not have a fixed schedule to attend to his customers.

He is requesting a loan to buy sodas, juices, sweets, cookies, and more merchandise to offer his customers. This purchase will help him increase his merchandise and improve his sales.

His biggest dream is to always keep his business and to improve it in order to have a better life for himself and his family.
