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 clothes.


Mario Antonio's story

Mario is currently asking for a new loan to buy more merchandise to stock his business and buy more clothes: pants, shirts and blouses to increase profits this way because he’ll have more variety to offer his customers. He used the previous loan for his other activity which is medicine sales. For the moment, he’ll invest it in this new one and buy clothes with the hope of having equal success as in the previous investment.
