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 buy vitamins and antibiotics in the form of pills, syrups and injections.


Tomas's story

Tomas lives with his parents and two siblings. He doesn't have any children and sells natural medicines for a living. He started his business with the help of a friend and now he has a lot of experience. He doesn't have a fixed schedule and goes out every day to sell his products.

He will use the loan to buy merchandise (vitamins and antibiotics in the form of pills, syrups and injections) and shelving to improve the presentation of his products. This will help him to increase his business and better serve his customers.

Tomas's dream is to have a large business so that he can support his family.
