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 $800 helped to buy a laptop computer.


Juan's story

Juan is an expert in video presentations and publicity. He needs the loan to buy a laptop computer so that he can take his designs to his customers and do more professional presentations that will impress his potential customers. He lives in his parents’ house located in the city of La Paz’s San Pedro zone. He’s single and has no children. This is the first time the client gets a loan and he hopes to grow as a micro businessman and this is why the loan is being channeled through Kiva.
