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).

Valentin's story

Valentín has a job as a bricklayer, but he is also an assistant tailor. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy construction materials such as stone, cement, and sand in order to finish the construction of a room. Valentín lives in his own home in the District of Munaypata in the city of La Paz. He is married and has two children.


His credit history dates back to 2007. Valentín has had three previous loans that were completely repaid. This is the second time he has requested a loan through Kiva.
