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).

Ivan Marcelino's story

At this time, Ivan Marcelino wants to do some maintenance work on his vehicle. He wants to use this loan to purchase grease and take his vehicle to the repair shop so that he can have maintenance work done on it. He wants to continue to prosper and buy another vehicle to rent out, so that it will generate more income for him.
