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 $1,200 helped to finish building work in his home.

Fernando's story

Señor Fernando lives in the province of Cercado, in the department of the city of Cochabamba. He is single, and is a very hard-working person. He lives with his mother and his siblings. His main source of income is providing passenger transportation service, which he does in the city of Cochabamba.

He currently has unfinished construction of two rooms. He is requesting the loan to finish the construction of these rooms in his home, and so be able to provide better space and comfort for his mother and siblings.

He is grateful to Kiva for the support of this loan, which is being offered to him through the financial institution CIDRE.
