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 $825 helped to buy scrap and old batteries to sell.


Eramo's story

Eramo, 39, is married to Selva, 39. They have been married for 20 years and have the good fortune of having three children.

Eramo buys and sells scrap and old batteries that later he resells to recycling plants in the area. Eramo's oldest son helps him with his work every day. His desire is to start his own recycling company, since he has experience in this area and will be able to perform the job without any problem.

He is requesting the loan to buy scrap and old batteries, since he has certain sales with the recycling businesses and he wants to increase his stock of products.
